AviaDev Africa Outreach. Luhlaza high School, Cape Town

AviaDev believes passionately in leaving a legacy and making an impact in the destination it takes place and each year, we organise an outreach event in a local school.

Working with the Girls Fly Programme for Africa, Aviators Africa Academy, NACO, Rolls-Royce and iFly, we ran a session for 100 STEM students at a high school in an underprivileged area of Cape Town.

13 speakers shared their expertise, personal stories and showed just what is possible when you put your mind to it. Highlights available here: (scroll to 3 minutes)

After the interactive talks, we ran a paper aeroplane competition and presented the winners with their very own model aircraft, before enjoying a networking lunch kindly sponsored by the Bench Charitable Committee.
