Published DateGILFORD — WinnAero, the aviation programs for youth non-profit based at the Laconia Airport, announces its latest innovation in aviation education for kids.
This summer, from July 29-August 2, WinnAero will be offering its popular ACE Academy experience for kids in elementary school grades 3 -5. Modeled after the success of its previous ACE Academies, this elementary school-aged day camp will run mornings only from 8:30 till noon and will feature age-appropriate learning activities for grades 3-5 campers.
Kids will learn to "fly" a computer-based flight simulator, tour the Laconia Airport, build model rockets and airplanes plus get a guided visit of the McAuliffe/Shepherd Discovery Center. Classroom activities and field trips will be conducted by licensed, certified NH school teachers led by WinnAero Program Director, Dan Caron.
