Thank you for your interest in the Washington Aerospace Scholars 2013-2014 program. Please read the following before starting your application:

The Great Africa Air Safari was an educational initiative bringing the real-time excitement of an airborne journey through Southern Africa to our Aviation Learning Center. A group of Museum volunteers and friends shipped their historic de Havilland Beaver aircraft from Seattle to Cape Town and flew between game preserves, recording their experiences, and connecting with Museum visitors.

The Museum was the virtual home for the Safari and featured a range of online activities and simulated flights in our Aviation Learning Center linked to this amazing adventure.

Big Bird, Elmo, and their new friend from China, Hu Hu Zhu, lead an interactive journey to the stars and Moon.  Spot Big Dipper, find the North Star, and discover why you can’t fly a kite on the Moon. This STEM-based experience is intended to teach participants about stars, constellations, and the differences between the Moon and Earth, while promoting cross-cultural understanding. 

WomenFly! 2012 was a great sucess!  Thank you to everyone who attended and to our speakers.  We're looking forward to WomenFly! 2013.

Text intro...

The Portable Universe programs are a great introduction to astronomy for learners of all ages, and consist of a series of modules that work individually or combined with other components to provide a range of astronomy-themed lessons that suit your needs. (See program descriptions on the following page.)

This fun assembly-style program is designed to help participants discover the science and history of flight through the use of flying toys and models. Our toy collection includes a flapping-winged bird, kites, parachutes, gliders, stomp rockets, and many others. Two versions of the Flying Gizmo Show are offered to keep the science and language at an age- appropriate level.
