Joan L. Hrubec Aviation Education Center opens October 8, 2010

Joan L. Hrubec Aviation Education Center

It's been a busy summer at the Joan L. Hrubec Aviation Education Center and it hasn't officially opened yet!

Thanks to a grant from the Wolf Aviation Fund, IWASM hosted students for a variety of classes during the summer. Their aviation history class introduced children to the science of flight and included time in the Wright Glider simulator as well as fun with paper airplanes. Living & Working in Space gave students the chance to make rockets and they learned about life on the International Space Station.

And in their Careers in Aviation & Space class, participants learned about marshalling airplanes and met the Aircraft Rescue & Firefighting Team at Burke Lakefront Airport (where the IWASM is located). More classes will be rolled out in October.

They will be officially dedicating the center on Friday, October 8 from 6:00-8:00 pm. All are welcome to attend and enjoy the completed center for the first time!
