Aerospace Program for Junior Scouts at Top Fun Aviation Toy Museum on Saturday, May 1

Girl Scouts of Central & Western Massachusetts is holding Aerospace Program for Junior Scouts at the Top Fun Aviation Toy Museum in Fitchburg on Saturday, May 1, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Juliette Scouts in grades 4 & 5 may also register. Troops and individual Scouts may register. Troops should follow safety-wise rules. Individual Scouts should attend with an adult.
Workshop: During this day-long workshop you'll complete 5 activities for the Aerospace Badge while learning and connecting with this fantastic museum staff!
Make different kinds of paper airplanes and test fly them to discover their flight characteristics. Take a tour of the museum exhibits and after lunch (bring bagged lunches), the group will reconvene to decorate and assemble kites.
Scouts will also explore careers in aviation and what it would be like to live and work in space. After an adult-free planning period, Scouts will then present a skit on living and working in space. If there's time, Scouts will finish off with a treasure hunt. Then, weather permitting, Scouts will take our kites down to Riverside Park for a test flight.
All your creations will go home with you for more flying fun!
Event # 4761
Registration will end on April 1 or when 30 scouts and 20 adults have registered.
Registration fee is $7 per Scout.
To register: Contact Top Fun Aviation Museum at 978-297-4337 or topfunaviation@verizon.net
