A is for Aerospace

March 27 @ 8:00 am - April 10 @ 5:00 pm

A is for Aerospace is a fun-filled rich half-day experience for PK-2nd graders in a stimulating and active environment.  Students will encounter aviation and space experiences through hands-on STEM activities that include career introduction, veterans, and historic vehicles.

How long is A is for Aerospace?

We recommend 2 hours to complete all the stations.  You can skip some stations if necessary to accommodate your transportation schedule.

What time is the program?

9:15AM – 11:15AM and 11:45AM – 1:45PM

What age child is this appropriate for?

Prek – 2nd grade

When can we attend?

A is for Aerospace is available over a 2-3 week period each Fall & Spring.  Sign up here to be the first to know when the season is open for registrations!

What will the adults do?

A 22:2 ratio student to teacher ratio is required.

They will stay with their group/class as they rotate around to the different workstations.  They should be mindful of where students are in our working hangar and assist as needed at the workstations.  There are a few workstations that teachers will lead as they follow the posted instructions.  Teachers and assistants just might have more fun than their kids!

Additional volunteers are needed to assist in running workstations (these volunteers will stay at one workstation while classes rotate around the event). If you are interested in volunteering for this program or any of our educational programs at the Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center, click here and fill out our volunteer form!
