Saturday Sessions to debut January 28 at EAA Aviation Museum

Three-hour educational activity for grades 6-12

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (January 9, 2023) — EAA’s new hands-on education Saturday Sessions program for young people in grades 6-12 will kick off on January 28 at the EAA Aviation Museum in Oshkosh. Saturday Sessions open a world of discovery to aviation with a focus on aircraft through fun projects and museum exploration.

Each session runs from 9 a.m. until noon and focuses on a different aspect of aircraft construction with an accompanying hands-on project for attendees to take home. The session begins in the Youth Education Center with a brief introduction on the subject followed by the hands-on activity. Students will then be tasked with completing a scavenger hunt inside of the museum pertaining to the session’s theme. The session will wrap up with a conclusion where students can share what they have learned and finish their hands-on project.

The inaugural Saturday Session is centered on aircraft structures. Students will have the opportunity to build a wooden wing rib while learning about early airframe designs. Other sessions on the schedule include March 18 on composite fabrication, and April 22 on avionics and communication.

Admission is $15 per student. Online registration is required 24 hours prior to the event. Adults must pay regular museum admission if they plan to stay with their student during the session. Students are welcome to further explore the museum following each session.
