Museum Hosts STEM Day: Engineers & Scientists Work with Youth

 

The Museum of Aviation is planning a Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Day for kids in Grades 1-5 on Saturday, August 13. Students will have the opportunity to work with real scientists and engineers from the Middle Georgia Community to make a solar powered robot, build a bridge or skyscraper and just have fun with “Cool Challenges.” 

That's according to a Museum of Aviation news release.

The Georgia Kids’ STEM Day will be held in the Museum’s Century of Flight Hangar from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM and includes lunch and activity supplies. The cost to attend is $35.

 “We’re excited to have mentors from L-3 Communications, Raytheon, Robins Air Force Base and area educators who will work with the kids in hand’s on activities including building a solar-powered robot,” said Melissa Spalding, the Museum’s Director of Education.  “Groups are welcome and we can work with scout troops and other groups to keep students together in classes.” 

Space is limited, so students are urged to register early.  The registration form is available online at www.moaeducation.com or by contacting Candi James at (478) 222-7575 or at cjames@museumofaviation.org.
