The WOR Air and Space Museum employs a special department for upkeep on all of the artifacts on display in the museum. This department, the Restoration Department, is tasked with not only preserving the current artifacts in the various collects, but restoring new and donated artifacts as well. Many of the aircraft, although never expected to be fully operational again, are in original condition.
Educational Programs at WOR Air and Space Museum
Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum features several educational programs for children and adults. From series of classes to summer camp programs, there are educational opportunities for almost everyone in the family.
There are several workshops offered throughout the year that allow adults to take part in class series that teach many different aspects of flight and aeronautics. There are programs that assist in building and flying remote control aircraft as well.
The Air and Space Summer Camp offers summer programs for children age 8-12 and takes place inside the World War II Hangar. Students get to take part in flight mission simulators, builds their own prototypes, watch planetarium shows, and launch missiles. Kids get to be an aerospace engineer for a day. There is also robotics activities and space stations modules. The museum offers scholarships for this program and pre-registration is required.
Wings Aerospace Academy is a tuition free charter school for grades five through nine that immerses students in science and aerospace technology. This charter school will expand little by little each year until 2020 when the WAA will be able to accept students in grades five through twelve. Courses taught through the academy are described as Hybrid-online learning and classroom learning combined. Photo:
