As the Nebraska Early Learning Guidelines stipulate, we know that children are learning every moment of the day. What better way to stimulate new learning than by immersing them in an environment full of awe-inspiring aircraft, space objects, and hands-on learning opportunities? Children are active learners and learn best by being able to touch and experience the world around them. Participants in Pint-Sized Professors will gain meaningful learning in a fun, supportive environment. Whether it’s story time in the belly of the HU-16 Albatross, or a lesson under the stars of our planetarium, children are sure to have a blast at the Strategic Air & Space Museum!
