Air museum offers STEM exhibits loan to schools

BANGOR — To enhance and encourage the learning experience of students, four aviation related scientific, technical, engineering and mathematical, or STEM demonstrations, designed by Maine Air Museum volunteers Bob Littlefield and Hank Marois, are available to be loaned to schools and libraries during the winter months while the museum is closed. Each of the exhibits is student interactive and demonstrates the Bernoulli Effect,  the relationship between flow speed and pressure in a fluid system.

This winter, the exhibits are being housed, displayed and loaned through the Challenger Learning Center of Maine. Jennifer Therrien, director of the center, is coordinating the loan program. Call her at 990-2900, ext. 3.

The exhibits include a wind tunnel, a Venturi demonstration, Bernoulli in Space and “Bernouilli’s 3-Ring Circus.” During the winter months, the exhibits can be seen at the Challenger Learning Center of Maine, 30 Venture Way, in Bangor.

The exhibits will return to the Maine Air Museum on Memorial Day weekend when the museum will be open to the public for the summer season.

The museum is located at 98 Maine Ave. just north of where Hammond Street meets the runway at Bangor International Airport.
