SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Students interested in aviation got to learn from a major company in the industry on Friday. 200 eighth grade students from Chatham, Effingham, and Bryan counties visited Gulfstream Aerospace for Aviation Career Day.

The day was filled with interactive science, technology, engineering, and mathmatics. Avaition Career Day was created to introduce students to the field of aerospace by showing them how Gulfstream builds its fleet of advanced business jets, and how it markets and supports them all over the world.

"Hopefully the idea is that something clicks inside their head at the end and they are able to then make that connection between what's going on in a place of employment and then whats going on in their classroom. To better understand why it's important that we learn math, science, technology, engineering and mathematics; those types of subjects." said Miriam Hodesh, community relations, Gulfstream.

Students toured an aircraft simulator, major assembly, interactive design, and maintenance and operational support.
