Education Scholarship Opportunity
The Clark Scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors pursuing a degree program at a Michigan institution and majoring in math, science, physics, engineering, technology, aviation or aeronautics.
The Yankee Air Museum provides unique historical and educational experiences through aviation, military, and home-front history, such as the local history focused on the Willow Run B-24 Bomber Plant. Explore the many exhibits within the museum, as well as a vast static aircraft collection ranging from World War I to the Vietnam era. We gear all of our experiences towards STEM programing to provide an overall educational experience that is fun for the entire family!
The Yankee Air Museum offers several options when booking a group or school tour at the Museum:
Take a flight on one of our Flight Simulators*
You can try simulated cliff jumping on one of our Xboxes where students learn about flight dynamics or try to land a Mars Rover on a mission to Mars. You can also see how high a stomp-bottle rocket can fly.
Movie: Watch one of our entertaining movies in our theater that features airline seats (seats up to 24 individuals)**
Fly Girls – A film documenting the important work of Women Air Service Pilots (WASPs) during WWII (50 min)
