WELCOME TO THE BESSIE COLEMAN PROJECT
As the first female African American licensed pilot In the 1920's, Bessie Coleman overcame racism and sexism to follow her dreams. Bessie Coleman blazed trails and challenged the status quo with her determination and her excellence.
The Bessie Coleman Project (BCP) is designed to expand learning opportunities for elementary and middle-grade students in the Rocky Mountain (Wyoming and Denver, Colorado) and Mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S. (Philadelphia and Baltimore) by leveraging Universal Design for Learning principles and strategies. It incorporates lessons and activities in 3D modeling, flight simulation, and piloting drones which are designed to bolster students’ interest and engagement in mathematics and science learning. Indeed, the overarching purpose of the project is to create new STEM Pathways that provide unique learning opportunities for underrepresented students.
