The Museum’s Education Department is committed to fulfilling our long-standing mission to educate, motivate, and inspire. To that end, we offer a wide variety of structured programs and informal activities. Our most often-requested activity, our group tours, annually accommodate thousands of visitors from pre-kindergartners to seniors.
Our summer Flight School offers several fun and educational one-hour to one-week classes for students from pre-kindergarten to 10th grade. Age-appropriate science, engineering, and math-oriented experiences and projects give our students a firm grounding in the fascinating history and technology of aviation and space flight.
Our year-round programs, available to school tours and non-school youth groups throughout the school year, feature engaging activities that present students with practical applications of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Numerous other programs and activities fill out our schedule throughout the year, such as regular presentations by our Living History/Oral History volunteers, annual events including “Moon Day” each July, lecture presentations, and the like.
Several of our programs are available as outreach activities to schools, recreation centers, and other community locations.
