SOAR for Science program

Macdonough School fourth grade students have been selected for a special field trip to the New England Air Museum!  The trip was arranged as part of the SOAR for Science program.  Located at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, the Museum is the largest aviation museum in New England.

Our students will:
  • SEE the landmark artifacts of aviation which changed history - Learn about the courage and determination of famous men and women who brought aviation to where it is today.
  • HEAR firsthand the stories of veterans who lived the wars of the 20th century and fought to preserve the freedom we now enjoy.
  • EXPERIENCE firsthand the principles of flight which have challenged the pioneers of aviation for generations.
  • DISCOVER the impact our state of Connecticut has had on aviation and space exploration from the earliest balloon launches of 1857 to the design of space suits and life support systems for present and future space missions.
The trip is scheduled for April 2011.  Stay tuned for a special blog about this exciting experience!
