Due to COVID-19 and to maintain the safety of our staff and the classrooms they visit, our outreaches are suspended until further notice.

November–March

Cost: Prices start at $125 plus mileage. Please contact us for more information at 317-776-6000.

Programs include the following:

Take Flight! (Grades 2-6)
Learn about the concepts of lift and thrust. Meet a pilot from the early days of flight and hear their story. Make and test a simple airplane made of paper. Discuss the importance of perseverance in innovation and invention.

Electricity (Grades 3 & 4)
A member of a 1930s farm family will visit your classroom to lead a series of activities involving electricity as a power source. Find out about the Rural Electrification Act that brought electricity to American farms. Discuss the pros and cons of using electricity. Build an electrical circuit. Take on roles of different types of farmers and, using a budget, make decisions on what equipment to buy if electricity comes to the farm.
