Flight Workshop Education Program

The Flight Workshop is a popular hands-on education program about the history, science, engineering and careers behind flight, offered both in an in-house and outreach format. The program utilizes nationally recognized standards based science and engineering curriculum from the partnership between Boeing and Iridescent (Curiosity Machine) and PBS Learning to target schools, homeschools, community groups, and families who are visiting the Museum. Museum staff and volunteers will dive deeper and will challenge the students to put their new knowledge to test and participate in one of our age appropriate engineering builds.

These programs are generously supported by: Boeing Company and PPG Aerospace

America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66

Special Exhibition through December 17th

Route 66 is emblematic of the American experience. Nearly every aspect of 20th century United States history is reflected in the story of the people and events along the Mother Road. Nearly a hundred years of highway culture can be found on the route that millions of people travel on every year, either in its entirety or in segments.

America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66 takes visitors on a geographical and historical tour of this iconic highway that stretches 2,448 miles and crosses through eight states. The exhibit features stories, artifacts, and images, as well as several inter-actives. America’s Road also features a photo essay created by photographer and author, Russell Olsen, who researched and photographed 75 classic Route 66 service stations, motor courts, cafes, and scenes.
