2024 summer children’s programming at RAMWC

Calling all teachers, parents, and caregivers! Have you heard about our 2024 educational summer programming? We have some new and exciting options this year. Read on to find out more!

Summer Fun Days

For the first time, this summer we’re offering public STEM programming for kids! These programs will be offered on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm for July and August and are suitable for kids aged four through 12.

Each two-and-a-half-hour program includes a tour, hands-on STEM activity, and playtime in our Aviation Plaza. Parents are welcome to drop off their children or stay and explore the museum.

Stay tuned for more details and registration info coming soon!

Group programs

Our group programs are ideal for daycares and summer camp groups.

This year, we have four fun programs to choose from. Each two-hour program includes a museum tour and hands-on activity. Please note: to register for one of these programs, you must have at least 15 students in your group.

Airports Away (Kindergarten to Grade 1)

Airports Away enables junior aviators to discover what happens at airports worldwide everyday. Young students have fun learning all about the airport through dramatic play. Children “become” an airplane in this engaging lesson and then work together to “fly”.

Whirly Birds *NEW* (Grades 2 to 6)

Through creative hands-on activities exploring balanced and unbalanced forces, junior engineers will discover how helicopters, drones, and other rotary-wing aircraft fly through the air.

Fun with Flying *NEW* (Kindergarten to Grade 6)

Through exploration of our Science of Flight zone, junior engineers design, construct, and test paper aircraft in a fun competition while learning how different forces impact flight. This lesson is exciting because junior aviators have a blast creating different types of gliders and participating in an exciting challenge. This lesson also introduces children to the development of flying machines over the past 200 years. 

Designiacs (Kindergarten to Grade 6)

After exploring different types of wonderful and weird aircraft featured in our museum collection, junior engineers will creatively collaborate in teams to design, build, and test aircraft made out of recyclable materials. We love seeing the creativity and unique designs that they come up with!
