National Aviation Hall of Fame partners with PBS on new education program

The National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) and PBS affiliate ThinkTV/Dayton have partnered to create a new education program.

“Discovering Flight: Learning with the National Aviation Hall of Fame” is a curriculum based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), using videos, interactives, lesson plans, and more for young learners, as well as teachers and parents working to support and inspire the next generation of aerospace legends.

In development now, the program is expected to be available in September 2020, according to NAHF officials.

Featured enshrinees include mechanics like Charles Taylor; trailblazing pilots like Bessie Coleman, Amelia Earhart, Bob Hoover and Patty Wagstaff; inventors and engineers like Frank Whittle, Igor Sikorsky, and Kelly Johnson; General Aviation legends like Olive Beech, Al Ueltschi, and Paul and Tom Poberezny; and aviation visionaries like Burt and Dick Rutan, Alan and Dale Klapmeier and Joan Sullivan Garrett.
