The Frontiers of Flight Museum offers students a unique environment to learn about innovations and technologies in aviation and space flight.

What makes us R.A.R.E.?

Our programs
Represent STEM | Align with TEKS | Relate back to the Museum | Educate-Motivate-Inspire

The Museum houses over 30 full-sized aircraft and space vehicles and is home to many unique artifacts including:  the V-173 “Flying Pancake”, the Apollo 7 Command Module,  a full scale model of the Wright Brother’s 1903 Flyer,  and the radio operators seat from the ill-fated Hindenburg airship.

We offer several classroom, planetarium, and auditorium educational programs in both STEM and Social Studies contact areas, specifically aligned with TEKS requirements.

My Moon, My Sky (PK-2nd)
Students learn about the stars (including our Sun), Earth, and Moon by comparing size, color, and position. Then, completing a lunar month, students identify the Moon’s phases and composition to better understand its relationship with the Earth.

Sun, Earth, Moon System (2nd-5th)
Daily and seasonal patterns and changes in our sky are explained as students observe the Sun, Earth, and Moon system from different perspectives. Comparing the characteristics of each body helps students better understand the states of matter, effects of having an atmosphere, and the pull of gravity!

Trip Through The Solar System (3rd-12th)
Students are guided on an adventure through our solar system visiting each planet to compare their physical and chemical properties, location, seasons, weather, and natural satellites. Visiting the non-planetary objects in our solar system teaches students that Pluto’s story is not uncommon.

Journey Through Space (All grades)
In this fully customizable program, teachers tell us what to show! This program can be adapted to fit the teaching objectives of chemistry, physics, mythology, history, and astronomy. Email correspondence will take place as soon as the program is booked so that our SPOC Educators are fully prepared to present your choice of material. The Universe is the limit!

STEM Nights (All grades)
SPOC teams up with eight interactive stations to explore matter in space and the effects of gravity! This program is perfect for family science nights.

BONUS for Educators!
Book a program and receive Pre and Post Program Guides including:
• Background for teachers
• Content reinforcement activities
• Pre and post program student assessments


Living History (All grades)
The colorful history of famous aviation personalities are brought to life through our presentations. Personalities include:  Amelia Earhart, Wiley Post and the Red Baron. Available for onsite only.

Learning to Fly (PK – K)
Young learners are introduced to the various people and facilities that help support the day to day operations of an airport. The students will then pilot their own plastic airplanes and “fly” around the museum in a short tour visiting various age appropriate exhibits. Available for onsite only.

Weather, it Matters! (PK – 5th)
Energize your classroom with hands-on activities comparing the intense weather present on the diverse planets of our solar system with our weather patterns on Earth.

Aerodynamics w/ Paper Airplanes (3rd – 6th)
Students are introduced to the physics of aerodynamics and learn about the four forces of flight through this hands-on and interactive program. They apply their newly gained knowledge by building and testing different paper air crafts.

Lunar Crash Course (3rd – 6th)
Students work in teams to apply problem solving and critical thinking skills to survive a crash landing on the Moon. Students learn about the Earth-Moon system and compare the physical characteristics of the two celestial bodies.

The Fight to Flight (5th – 8th)
In this exciting auditorium program, students will compete in aerospace challenges demonstrating three firsts in flight: the Wright brothers, Sputnik I, and Apollo 11

Flight School 101 (6th – 12th)
Take off in this advanced aviation course where students will learn about what it takes to be a pilot!

Emergency Mars Mission (7th – 12th)
Future astronauts are faced with a critical survival situation when they get stranded on Mars. Students will have to use teamwork and creativity to ensure their success.
