Discover Aviation Logo (outlines) - whit

 The field of aviation has many components to include: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).  Every year we learn more about flight from faster airplanes, to unmanned aircraft, to flying beyond our atmosphere into space.  Who will be the next person to develop the next big break through in aviation?  

Join us for this annual Discover Aviation event, sponsored by Raven, designed for kids of all ages.  We will have many activities and opportunities to learn more and have some fun while being around some pretty cool airplanes!
