The Strategic Air & Space Museum’s Education Department is committed to fueling the curiosity of children across the Midwest and to educating them with special emphasis in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). We believe that STEM is a direction of great significance for our youth and the future of our country and world and so we strive for excellence in all of our STEM-centered educational programs.
New for Winter 2014 we offer four experiences to get excited about some very cool STEM topics: robotics, zombies, crime scene investigation, and technology. Learn more about each offered camp below.
