the EAA Chapter 350 & IAC Chapter 61 Newsletters to Teach Your Kids
about Airplanes And Business.
Here Steve makes copies of the original newsletter artwork.
Our kids group does the collating, folding, stapling, labeling and stamping
required to send the newsletters for both EAA Chapter 350 and IAC Chapter
61. The kids learned about what a newsletter is, operating a copy
machine, using preprinted labels, using a stamp dispenser, and about
how many stamps are required to send a letter to a foreign country (Gordon
Phillips, an IAC Member in Wolgast East Germany). This is where the business part
comes in with the Y-I-BET program. The kids look forward to putting
the newsletter together and enjoying each others friendly interaction during its
The copy machine is located in the basement of Roger Smith's house.
Every time we go there, we get to see Roger Smith's Airplane Shop and the
Pitts Aerobatic Biplane that is being modified there. This is an association reinforcement
with airplanes in Steve's mind. The more times that Steve sees an
aircraft or any other type of machine shop, the stronger Steve's ties are
to the aviation and technological fields. The chances that
Steve becomes involved in aviation and engineering are greatly increased,
increasing the number educated technically inclined entry level workers
to America's workforce.
We work with all of the other kids in this type of association link process too.
