AMA TAG Grant

Take Off & Grow 

    In the fall of 2023, BCMA was awarded a $1000 TAG (Take off and Grow) grant to partner with a local middle school STEM program by the AMA!!! Many thanks to the AMA and to District V leadership at the AMA for making this happen.

    Looking forward to helping out a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) middle school group design, source materials, build, and ultimately fly a model aircraft (3 actually per semester) for the 2023/24 school year. Club members will mentor the students weekly as they move from building to flying! The goal of the AMA’s TAG program is to engage a live for aviation and modeling within the local community. BCMA is thankful for this partnership with a AMA and our local middle school.

As students progress, we'll be posting updates and photos on the Community Outreach page HERE.
