ELEMENTARY

Learning to Fly (C PK – K)
Introduce young learners to  various people and facilities that help support the daily operations of an airport. Students will then practice piloting around the Museum on an educator-led tour. 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 apply the physics of aerodynamics and learn about the four forces of flight through this interactive program. They will then practice using their newly-gained knowledge by building and testing different paper aircraft.

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

My Moon, My Sky (P PK – 2nd)
Stargazers learn about the different types of stars (including our Sun), Earth, and Moon by comparing size, color, and position. Zooming in on the Moon, we complete a lunar month identifying the Moon’s phases and surface composition.

Sun, Earth, Moon System (P 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!

MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL

The Fight to Flight (C/A 5th – 8th)
In this exciting auditorium program, students will compete in challenges demonstrating four firsts in aerospace history: the Wright Brothers, Sputnik I, Vostok I, and Apollo 11, while also learning about diverse achievements.

Emergency Mars Mission (7th – 12th)
Students form NASA mission control teams to plan a colonizing operation to Mars. Tasks include selecting launch dates, rocket type, and diverse crew members. Their mission is then tested against rigorous scenarios to determine the rate of success and survival.

Trip Through The Solar System (P 5th – 8th)
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.


ALL GRADES

Living History (C/A All grades)
History comes to life through interactive auditorium programs in which diverse aviation characters tell their stories. Current personalities include: Amelia Earhart, Wiley Post, and Dora Dougherty (WASP)

Journey Through Space (P | All grades)
In this fully-customizable program, teachers choose what is shown! This program can be adapted to fit the teaching objectives of chemistry, physics, history, and astronomy. Mythology may be included to explain how the names of celestial objects came about. The Universe is the limit!
