Annual Easter Egg Hunt
The Hill Aerospace Museum “Annual Easter Egg Hunt” draws thousands of people to the museum. More than 10,000 plastic eggs, treats and prized are carefully placed around the museum grounds. Areas are cordoned off according to age group. Then at the appointed hour the horn blows and then all of the goodies that took months to prepare are gathered up by anxious children within minutes. A fun morning for all those present. A great opportunity for the community to visit the Hill Aerospace Museum. The 2018 Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for March 24, 2018 at 10:00 am SHARP! PLEASE arrive early.
Museum STEM Summer Passport Program
Coming up in Summer 2018, Hill Aerospace Museum will launch a brand new, fun Summer STEM Passport Program. During the week our Education staff will be offering classes in Astronomy, Chemistry, Electricity, Forces of Flight, Helicopters, It’s All in the Tilt, Magnetics, Mission to Mars, Simple Machines, Rockets, and Weather. Class times will vary each day with two or three classes each day. The classes will be open to kids at least six years of age on a first come first served basis. Parents are welcome to attend the classes with the kids. Each student will be issued a Museum STEM Passport. A subject page in the Passport will be stamped after each class session. When the kids get all of the pages stamped by attending all classes, they will receive a special pin. More details will be available soon. Stay tuned to this page or call the Hill Aerospace Museum at 801-825-5817 for details.
Utah Governor Gary Herbert has identified aerospace as the segment that is most vital to our economy. The role of Reynolds Aerospace Center for Education fits perfectly in today’s emphasis on STEM (Science, Math, Engineering and Technology) courses. It is our desire that the Aerospace Center for Learning will spark the interest of science in the lives of our young people and lead them to careers in Aerospace or other science related fields.
