Capt. Judy Ingersoll and Major Chuck Ingersoll guide students through a flight simulation at South Amherst Middle School. The Ohio Civil Air Patrol officers taught kids in Chuck Latto’s STEM class about the science of flight, then young learners applied what they learned to practice virtual maneuvers. The CAP is an auxiliary of the United States Air Force consisting of volunteers that provide help with services such as search and rescue missions and disaster relief.
