K-12 Outreach


As a NASA Group 5 University Research Center, the Center for Human Factors in Advanced Aeronautics Technologies (CHAAT), performs on-going research to measure human performance in complex systems such as the Next Generation Airspace Transportation System (NextGen). We will also participate in the development of students in human factors and related disciplines.

The increased demand for human factors training stems from the growing tendency to rely on technology and automation for solving capacity problems in large-scale systems such as NextGen. Through research and educational development, CHAAT intends to increase the number of degrees awarded to students in the aeronautics field, especially those from minority, women, and underrepresented groups.

Below are programs that highlight our Educational and Outreach Activities.
