Current Aviation Learning Labs:

Youth Ground School - In this Aviation Learning Lab, students will learn about GPS, Flight Planning and Pre-Flight. Once they have mastered the skills, they will have the chance to practice on our flight simulators. In addition, students will use different math techniques to plan a flight and learn how weather affects planes.
This Aviation Learning Lab is for middle and high school students.
KES: (5-7) Science 6.3, (8-12) Science 2B.1

From Blueprints to Flight - This Aviation Learning Lab is all about Engineering. Students will learn about the engineering process and how it's used in aviation. They will create an airplane using airfoil design, wing design, multi-wings, material testing and prototype building.
This Aviation Learning Lab is for 3rd grade to high school students.
KES: (3-4) Science 5.2, (5-7) Science 5.2, and (8-12) Science 5.1

Wichita Air Traffic Control - In this Aviation Learning Lab, students will learn about how air traffic controllers use simple math involving speed, distance and time. They will then be able to practice in our Air Traffic Control Simulation. Students will also learn airport and runway basics in the Airport Design Challenge.
This Aviation Learning Lab is for all grade levels.
KES: (3-4) S5.2, (5-7) S5.2, (8-12) S5.1

Up, Up, and Away - This Aviation Learning Lab focuses on balloons. Students will learn about air and how it affects hot air balloons, gliders and parachutes. Once they know the basics, they will participate in the Da Vinci Design Challenge where the slowest-falling design wins.
This Aviation Learning Lab is for all grade levels.
