Kids can learn to ‘soar’ at PAM this summer

(Via Ho’okele News)

Students in sixth through eighth grade have an opportunity this summer to soar at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor’s new “Aviation Adventure” and returning “Flight School” program.

The Aviation Adventure immerses teens in the rich history of Ford Island and Pearl Harbor, as well as science, technology, engineering and math concepts of aviation. Hands-on, practical experiences bring these concepts to life in the museum’s historic hangars and aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial.

This program is open to everyone who has completed the basic flight school program or is at least 13 years of age. Overnight accommodations are provided aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial.

Cost of the three-day program is $300, which includes all materials, meals, snacks, overnight accommodations, and an Aviation Adventure logo tee shirt. The program begins at 9 a.m. on Tuesday and ends at 4 p.m. on Thursday. Aviation Adventure launches July 15-17 and July 22-24.
