According to Frontiers of Flight Museum President/CEO Cheryl Sutterfield-Jones,
Students entering 6th to 8th grades can learn about the wonders of aviation this summer at the Frontiers of Flight Museum’s STEM-based mini summer camp at Dallas Executive Airport, 5303 Challenger Dr., August 6-17. Campers can choose one of the exciting 3-day camp sessions on either August 6-8; August 8-10; Aug. 13-15; or August 15-17 and each session runs from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The camp fee is $24 and includes lunch, a camp t-shirt, materials and supplies. Special thanks to Blue Sky Educational Foundation for their support of this invaluable summer experience.
The Museum’s STEM-based mini summer camp at Dallas Executive Airport is a unique educational opportunity for middle school students making it one of the community’s most enriching and fun learning experiences this season. The 3-day camp sessions introduce students to aviation and principles of flight through a hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) focused curriculum. On the first day, students receive instruction about the basics of flight and aviation as well as career pathways in aerospace. This is followed by a second day focused on rockets and space exploration. Finally, the students take an amazing field trip to tour the Frontiers of Flight Museum and learn to fly on a computer simulator.
The Museum is a learning laboratory using aviation and space flight to encourage and promote student excellence in STEM education, which reflects the museum’s mission to educate, motive, and inspire the next generation. Generous funding support from our donors has enabled us to strengthen our STEM-based mini summer camp at Executive Airport which promotes student interest in those fields and meets the accelerated demand for the Frontiers of Flight Museum’s outstanding educational programs.”
The Frontiers of Flight Museum’s STEM-based mini summer camp at Dallas Executive Airport provides high-quality scientific instruction and exposure to career opportunities in the aviation industry to economically underserved children living in Dallas. Many of the students who have participated in the Museum’s educational programs now have their sights aimed high on becoming aviators, rocket scientists or just learning the basics of aviation. Students also enjoy the expert instructors who make the program educational, interactive and most of all, fun!
