Get ready for takeoff at the 2019 Lockheed Martin Aviation Camp! A week-long STEM based camp that provides hands-on aviation experience for rising 4th through 6th grade students. The camp is packed with activities that help future aviator’s understand science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. More importantly, it will cultivate students’ sense of wonder, imagination and creativity. Students will be exposed to careers in aviation through several field trips to airports and other aviation facilities, including component testing and assembly. The culminating experience will be a team build-off competition, in which the students will be challenged to build and fly an aircraft of their own design. Engineers from Lockheed Martin Aviation will mentor the teams.
Location: Fernbank Science Center
Dates: June 17-21 and June 24-28, 2019
