Preparing for professional development day? Take advantage of the museum to meet, experiment, and become more familiar with our education programs. Feel free to invite our Education Programmer to come and speak about the interactive programs created, developed and implemented specifically in aviation, technology, science, and history. All programs are aligned to meet or exceed the learning outcomes outlined in the Ministry of Education Guidelines. For more information contact Gina Heinbockel-Bolik at 613-965-3874
Prepare your class in advance. Download the activity kit on our resources page prior to your visit or use as a follow up piece. Have your students read and talk aviation, carry out research, prepare questions or draw pictures. For immersion classes or young students, it is helpful to introduce any new vocabulary and technical terms that will be used during the program.
A visit can include a picnic in the airpark under the wing of an aircraft, or during inclement weather, enjoy your litterless lunch while taking in an up close and personal view of the Halifax, from the museum conference hall. The Museums coin machine offers an exciting treasure that will make a one-of-a kind souvenir of your visit.
Teachers are invited to browse through the museum’s giftshop, for educational materials on aviation, etc. Special arrangements may be made during school tours to visit the giftshop during student “Free Time”. We would ask that only 5 students at a time and accompanied by a parent or supervisor.
