This grant will fund the use of the Edustation Flight Simulator to be used in a new Aviation Club for 4th and 5th graders at Duffy Elementary School, allowing 200 students to experience the wonders of flight. The goal of the Aviation Club is to teach students how to understand and apply math and science in a meaningful and engaging manner and will integrate geometry, meteorology, geography and topography. The club will run three mornings a week and three recesses. There would be four groups, mixed grade levels in the morning and grade specific groups during recess. Three teachers will launch the program but other teachers will be recruited.
