Last week, I was in Dallas for the last AOPA Summit. Tons of exhibitors, pilots, and general aviation enthusiasts were roaming the halls of the Fort Worth Convention Center. One of the pilots I had the chance to catch up with is Judy Rice. Judy is a long-term aviation educator and has worked at 4-H, EAA, Civil Air Patrol and many other aviation organizations. She's responsible for the development of KidVenture at EAA AirVenture and several major aviation educational programs that are still running at those organizations today.

Judy has a really interesting and new project designed to connect students around the world with a new project called Think Global Flight. Think Global is an around the world flight designed to connect middle and high school students with the challenges of such a mission. Pretty cool project. For more information check out: Think Global!
