Hill Aerospace Museum’s Aviation Camp is held each summer.
The summer of 2017 marks the sixth year of STEM Camp offered to elementary aged students. Groups of thirty students attended a four-day camp that teaches science and aviation fundamentals. Utah Governor Gary Herbert has identified aerospace as the segment that is most vital to our economy. The role of ACE in 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.
