<ul><li><p>A BRIGHTER FUTURE BEGINS TODAY </p><p>The Museum of Aviation assists in the funding of projects and programs by helping to bring community resources to schools, </p><p>students, and teachers. </p><p>Museum of Aviation at Robins Air Force Base Georgia Foundation, Inc. P.O. Box 2469, Warner Robins, GA 31099 </p><p>(478) 923-6600 www.museumofaviation.org </p><p>A BRIGHTER FUTURE BEGINS TODAY </p></li><li><p>Education in America is at a critical juncture, and the Museum of </p><p>Aviation recognizes the urgency and embraces this priority. The </p><p>Museums programs greatly enhance the traditional classroom-</p><p>based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) </p><p>education experiences of children by providing constructive, </p><p>hands-on learning opportunities unmatched by any other regional </p><p>organization or facility. Participation in educational programming </p><p>was 49,933 in FY2015 and will continue to grow, as the need for </p><p>this type of educational programming is greater now than ever </p><p>before. Decreasing budgets and decreased staff poses significant </p><p>challenges in sustaining high-level programming. Simply stated, </p><p>we have to do more with less. </p><p>Teachers and Students The Museum of Aviation Education Center operates Science, </p><p>Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and History-focused </p><p>programs for learners ages 4 and older. Rigorous, goal-setting </p><p>experiences challenge students to solve problems, and improve upon </p><p>skills learned in school. Programs are aligned to the Georgia Standards </p><p>of Excellence. Programs highlight career opportunities and workforce </p><p>development strategies and are conducted both at the Museum of </p><p>Aviation and outreach locations. </p><p> ACE (Aviation Connections through Experiments) </p><p>Pre-K 5th grade students: Science and Math STEM Field Trip </p><p>program at the Museum of Aviation feature activities correlated to </p><p>grade specific standards. The Wonder Wings Field Trip is for Pre K </p><p> Kindergarten and features Things that Fly and Models of </p><p>Transportation. Outreach programs are available to bring fun </p><p>activities to the school sites. </p><p> Mission Quest Flight Simulation Center </p><p>6th grade students Adults: The Mission Quest Flight Simulation </p><p>Program is for groups of students in grades 6-12. The 3-hour program </p><p>involves planning and flying a mission. The Mission Quest 6-hour </p><p>Team Building Program is an opportunity for adults to work together </p><p>to plan and fly a mission. </p><p>STAT: Teacher Training </p><p>K 12 Educators: Programs are offered to educators and future </p><p>educators. These programs provide free NASA materials, monthly </p><p>STEM workshops, online training, conferences, and intern </p><p>opportunities for future educators. </p><p>And so much more </p><p>The Museum of Aviation Foundation funds </p><p>projects and programs to enhance STEM </p><p>education for schools, students, and teachers. </p><p>Impact The most overwhelming fact when accounting for the education of 49,933 participants in one year is that 124,389 hours of instruction were administered during FY2015. </p><p>To break this down further, </p><p>Georgia educational requirements </p><p>are that 6th 12th grade students </p><p>receive 990 hours of instruction per </p><p>year (810 for K 3rd and 900 for </p><p>4th 5th) during a 180-day school </p><p>year. </p><p>The Museums STEM education </p><p>programs provided 124,389 hours </p><p>of instruction during FY2015. </p><p>IN ONE FISCAL YEAR THE EQUIVALENT OF </p><p>22,616 DAYS OF SCHOOL OR 126.5 SCHOOL YEARS </p><p>WAS PROVIDED BY </p><p>THE MUSEUM TO </p><p>SCHOOL CHILDREN </p><p>FROM ACROSS THE </p><p>ENTIRE STATE OF </p><p>GEORGIA! </p><p>Goals #1: Strengthen our position as the National STEM Academy The Museum of Aviation has the potential to do </p><p>so much more with additional funding and </p><p>resources. With your help, we look to expand </p><p>our program offerings to reach even more </p><p>students and educators. We have overwhelming </p><p>participation in our special events, workshops </p><p>and thematic camp programs scheduled </p><p>throughout the year- Saturdays, student holidays, </p><p>and summer. </p><p>We feature programs such as GA Kids STEM </p><p>Day, Young Astronauts Day, STEM Labs, and </p><p>Summer Camps. These programs fill up quickly </p><p>by high demand. </p><p> #2: Increase partnerships with local and regional higher learning institutions. Through expansion of existing partnerships and </p><p>development of new partnerships with both local </p><p>and regional institutions of higher learning, the </p><p>Museum can strengthen and enhance the STEM </p><p>offerings. Also, in partnership with these </p><p>institutions, an aggressive marketing campaign will </p><p>be initiated for the recruitment of additional STEM </p><p>based events. </p><p>#3: Greater outreach to underserved groups The Museum is aligned in partnerships with area </p><p>school districts, including Title One schools in </p><p>underrepresented areas, along with Technical </p><p>Schools, Colleges, and Universities throughout the </p><p>State. By providing year-round programming, </p><p>opportunities for hands-on training, exposure to </p><p>aviation simulation equipment, and an air traffic </p><p>control program, (to name a few), the Museum </p><p>provides students of all ages with insight into </p><p>careers in Science and Engineering fields. The </p><p>highly qualified education staff is also diligent in </p><p>recruiting female and minority students for STEM </p><p>education initiatives to ensure the future STEM </p><p>workforce is better prepared, and more </p><p>representative of the U.S. population. </p><p>WE ARE HOME TO GEORGIAS </p><p>ONLY NASA EDUCATIONAL </p><p>RESOURCE CENTER </p><p>The Museum of Aviation Foundation believes in the positive impact that Public Educators </p><p>and their students can have on the community. We believe that STEM education </p><p>can offer young minds the opportunity to succeed and help achieve their fullest </p><p>potential. </p></li><li><p>Education in America is at a critical juncture, and the Museum of </p><p>Aviation recognizes the urgency and embraces this priority.
