Kids get hands-on STEM training at the Museum of Aviation
WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — On Saturday night, hundreds of kids packed out the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins for their annual ‘Night at the Museum’ event.
Kids not only got the chance to look at planes, but got to participate in hands-on STEM activities.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Attendees even danced with airplanes and Star Wars characters.
All of the proceeds from the event went to the museum’s National STEM Academy.
“We really stride to teach about careers, we want these students to love math and science, and to do that we make history come to life and teach them the fundamentals of math and science in a real, fun way that makes sense to them,” said Director of the National STEM Academy Melissa Spalding.
More than 100 volunteers were on deck to make sure everybody had a great time.
