At the Frontiers of Flight Museum, North Texas Giving Day on Thursday, Sept. 14 (http://www.flightmuseum.com/ntgd/) is the perfect opportunity to support STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education.
Contributions to the Frontiers of Flight Museum on North Texas Giving Day really help make a difference and will impact kids across the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Gifts allow the Museum to provide and expand the STEM and Aviation and Space History curriculum and programs to 18,000 kids and growing from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade and throughout North Texas.
The Frontiers of Flight Museum's educational programs help teach kids the fundamentals and advanced skills in astronomy, physics, math, robotics, coding and much more. Many of these programs are held during the Museum's Aviation and Space Camps, Spring Break Camps, school tours and events throughout the year, including the Frontiers of Flight Museum's Volunteer Program.
The Museum helps take kids to the Moon, though the solar system and back to Earth using the fascinating programs in its portable planetarium, SPOC and the exploration of the Space Flight Gallery, anchored by the Apollo VII Command Module.
