October 24-26 Aerospace Discovery Weekend – a 3-day Aviation Adventure (formerly Wings ‘n Things)
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education is at the forefront of activities at the Aerospace Center for Excellence. Hands-on activities during this weekend event engage students of all ages in a continual learning environment. This year, the event activities have been enhanced with a Saturday evening presentation, photo and autograph sessions with an F-22 Raptor pilot! Weekend activities include a MOSI traveling show, a RockWall, Laser Tag and even Geocaching. Students have the opportunity to register for their ‘first flight’ at no cost above camping or daily registration. Best known as a scouting weekend where badge components can be earned, church groups, families, neighbors, teachers, aunts and uncles are also found on the grounds with groups that will benefit from the experience. Volunteers are needed for many events on the SUN ‘n FUN Convention Campus, but this one is not only exciting, it is rewarding. Visit the SUN ‘n FUN website for details.
