  • A BRIGHTER FUTURE BEGINS TODAY

    The Museum of Aviation assists in the funding of projects and programs by helping to bring community resources to schools,

    students, and teachers.

    A BRIGHTER FUTURE BEGINS TODAY

  • Education in America is at a critical juncture, and the Museum of

    Aviation recognizes the urgency and embraces this priority. The

    Museums programs greatly enhance the traditional classroom-

    based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)

    education experiences of children by providing constructive,

    hands-on learning opportunities unmatched by any other regional

    organization or facility. Participation in educational programming

    was 49,933 in FY2015 and will continue to grow, as the need for

    this type of educational programming is greater now than ever

    before. Decreasing budgets and decreased staff poses significant

    challenges in sustaining high-level programming. Simply stated,

    we have to do more with less.

    Teachers and Students The Museum of Aviation Education Center operates Science,

    Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and History-focused

    programs for learners ages 4 and older. Rigorous, goal-setting

    experiences challenge students to solve problems, and improve upon

    skills learned in school. Programs are aligned to the Georgia Standards

    of Excellence. Programs highlight career opportunities and workforce

    development strategies and are conducted both at the Museum of

    Aviation and outreach locations.

    ACE (Aviation Connections through Experiments)

    Pre-K 5th grade students: Science and Math STEM Field Trip

    program at the Museum of Aviation feature activities correlated to

    grade specific standards. The Wonder Wings Field Trip is for Pre K

    Kindergarten and features Things that Fly and Models of

    Transportation. Outreach programs are available to bring fun

    activities to the school sites.

    Mission Quest Flight Simulation Center

    6th grade students Adults: The Mission Quest Flight Simulation

    Program is for groups of students in grades 6-12. The 3-hour program

    involves planning and flying a mission. The Mission Quest 6-hour

    Team Building Program is an opportunity for adults to work together

    to plan and fly a mission.

    STAT: Teacher Training

    K 12 Educators: Programs are offered to educators and future

    educators. These programs provide free NASA materials, monthly

    STEM workshops, online training, conferences, and intern

    opportunities for future educators.

    And so much more

    The Museum of Aviation Foundation funds

    projects and programs to enhance STEM

    education for schools, students, and teachers.

    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.

    To break this down further,

    Georgia educational requirements

    are that 6th 12th grade students

    receive 990 hours of instruction per

    year (810 for K 3rd and 900 for

    4th 5th) during a 180-day school

    year.

    The Museums STEM education

    programs provided 124,389 hours

    of instruction during FY2015.

    IN ONE FISCAL YEAR THE EQUIVALENT OF

    22,616 DAYS OF SCHOOL OR 126.5 SCHOOL YEARS

    WAS PROVIDED BY

    THE MUSEUM TO

    SCHOOL CHILDREN

    FROM ACROSS THE

    ENTIRE STATE OF

    GEORGIA!

    Goals #1: Strengthen our position as the National STEM Academy The Museum of Aviation has the potential to do

    so much more with additional funding and

    resources. With your help, we look to expand

    our program offerings to reach even more

    students and educators. We have overwhelming

    participation in our special events, workshops

    and thematic camp programs scheduled

    throughout the year- Saturdays, student holidays,

    and summer.

    We feature programs such as GA Kids STEM

    Day, Young Astronauts Day, STEM Labs, and

    Summer Camps. These programs fill up quickly

    by high demand.

    #2: Increase partnerships with local and regional higher learning institutions. Through expansion of existing partnerships and

    development of new partnerships with both local

    and regional institutions of higher learning, the

    Museum can strengthen and enhance the STEM

    offerings. Also, in partnership with these

    institutions, an aggressive marketing campaign will

    be initiated for the recruitment of additional STEM

    based events.

    #3: Greater outreach to underserved groups The Museum is aligned in partnerships with area

    school districts, including Title One schools in

    underrepresented areas, along with Technical

    Schools, Colleges, and Universities throughout the

    State. By providing year-round programming,

    opportunities for hands-on training, exposure to

    aviation simulation equipment, and an air traffic

    control program, (to name a few), the Museum

    provides students of all ages with insight into

    careers in Science and Engineering fields. The

    highly qualified education staff is also diligent in

    recruiting female and minority students for STEM

    education initiatives to ensure the future STEM

    workforce is better prepared, and more

    representative of the U.S. population.

    WE ARE HOME TO GEORGIAS

    ONLY NASA EDUCATIONAL

    RESOURCE CENTER

    The Museum of Aviation Foundation believes in the positive impact that Public Educators

    and their students can have on the community. We believe that STEM education

    can offer young minds the opportunity to succeed and help achieve their fullest

    potential.
