The Beacon is an aviation after school outreach project.  It's geared toward elementary students with a focus on grades three to five who express an interest in aviation.

The Beacon introduces aviation as a career option, hobby, and a lifestyle choice. The project is made possible through the partnership of the Afterschool Place, Bismarck Aero Center, and Aviation Education of North Dakota.    

We meet twice a month throughout the school year. Our Beacon Team is kept small with a maximum of 13 students to ensure the greatest level of participation.
