In considering a topic for the "Issues in Education" Panel at the 1993 National Congress for Aviation and Space Education, it appeared logical to consider a basic question: Is the current aerospace education effort outdated at this time? A quick response is no....but this demise could happen if we fail to adjust to the rapid changes that are taking place throughout our society and subsequently in our schools. The shifting school environment and the emerging generation of adolescents require new considerations in developing materials and activities for aviation/space education. About two years ago an awareness of the gradual decline of young people joining aviation organizations or otherwise becoming involved with their activities was a priority concern of the 39 member organization Illinois Aviation Forum.
