The Museum of Aviation Foundation National STEM Academy will hold a Georgia Kids’ STEM Day on Saturday for elementary-age children.

“This is a day for young learners to have fun with science, technology, engineering and math activities,” Melissa Spalding, director of education for the museum, said in a news release. “The students will explore rocketry, gliders, electrical rovers and do other interesting hands-on activities.”

Maj. Luther Brown, a pilot at Robins Air Force Base, will be the guest speaker. There also will be mentors from other career fields, such as law enforcement, teaching, engineering, nursing and firefighting, the release states.

The event will be held 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Century of Flight Hangar. It is open to second- through fifth-graders. The cost is $30, which includes lunch and supplies.

Preregistration is required. To register, go to, call 222-7580 or email
