Led by one of our knowledgeable volunteers, students tour the museum and see real airplanes up close. Students then move into our classroom and build two flying crafts to take home with them.

This program is a great introduction to museums, learning about history, and experimenting with crafts that fly. It balances learning from a guided discussion with completing a hands-on activity - a great way to learn using multiple senses.
