Bring the excitement of aviation or space to your school campus for an after-school adventure in flight! Aerospace educators from the Hiller Aviation Museum visit your school one afternoon per week to explore the science of flight with hands-on activities and aircraft artifacts. Programs may vary in length from 5 to 10 weeks. Activities may include:
- Model airplanes and helicopters
- Biplanes and aerobatic gliders
- The Wright Brothers and Wright Flyer models
- Flight planning and navigation
- Air Traffic Control computer simulations
- Air resistance and parachutes
- Water rockets
- And much, much more!
Programs may be held in on-campus classrooms, multipurpose rooms, or lunch areas. Registrations may be processed by the Hiller Aviation Museum, school, or third party (such as a Parents Association). Program fees start at $13.50/child for an eight-week program. Pricing for shorter programs, or programs at schools where a facility use fee applies, will vary.
