8.     AVIATION EDUCATION GRANT PROGRAM — Grayson Ardies, Michelle Bouziden

        The Commission will consider approving a program scope change to a previously approved aerospace and aviation education grant for the OU Sooner Flight Academy (SFA). The scope of the SFA program that was originally approved by the Commission involved summer camps for varying ages of children that were hosted in-person at Max Westheimer Airport from the end of May through the beginning of August.  Due to existing COVID-19 complications the scope of the program would need to be amended in order to transition to online virtual summer camps. The primary goal of SFA is still in place and that is to provide opportunities for learners of all ages to develop a love for aviation, to learn about the science and math of flight through hand-on experiences, and to set the stage for life-long contributions to Oklahoma aviation and other STEM career fields.  Staff recommends approval for the change in scope of the program.
