Carolinas Aviation Museum

By telling the stories of the people who shaped aviation heritage, the Carolinas Aviation Museum inspires groups to write the next chapter. The museum, located parallel to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, allows students, scouts, homeschoolers, and campers to learn STEM concepts in relation to aviation. On display at the Carolinas Aviation Museum are civil and commercial aircraft, the 1903 Wright Flyer, and military aircraft dating back to World War I. Groups can also check out the museum’s award-winning “Miracle on the Hudson” exhibit, which features the passenger jet from the Hudson River crash landing in 2009.

STEM Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Throughout history American innovations have greatly impacted the country and the world. The light bulb, the assembly line, the refrigerator, flight, and the personal computer are all inventions by American innovators. For America to continue to lead the world in innovation, students must be trained, educated, and fluent in the foundation of innovation – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These essential subjects can be found and applied to a plethora of class trip destinations. Consider the science that makes possible the activities you partake in and the places you visit.
