HELENA – Elementary and middle school teachers are at the Montana Learning Center at Canyon Ferry this week for an aeronautics workshop.

The 18 teachers from across the state have been getting hands-on experience with projects they can use to teach STEAM concepts with aeronautics in their classrooms.

The goal of the workshop is to “foster and promote” aeronautics in Montana.

On Friday, the teachers were treated to a fly-in by REACH Air Ambulance and learned more in-depth about the air ambulance field and the science behind helicopters.

Bainville teacher April Wills said that she’s incredibly thankful for the opportunity to attend the workshop and is looking forward to sharing aeronautics with her students.

“I’m hoping that I can just instill a love of learning with them through this,” said Wills, “It’s so exciting, it’s something new, and not every student gets to learn about airplanes and flight.”

On Saturday the teachers will each receive a one hour introductory flight lesson as well as tours of the air traffic control tower and the hangar of a local airplane builder at the Helena regional airport.

The event is sponsored by Montana PBS, Vetter Aviation, Sleeping Giant Flying Club and the Montana Learning Center.
