FAIRBANKS, Alaska An educational program put on by the Pioneer Air Museum is now available for sessions through the end of June. "Space Adventures" is a program for children ages 6 to 10 discussing aerial topics ranging from airplanes to Mars rovers and more.
Children at the event can get hands-on experiences and learn about the history and science of air and space.
The Alaska Historical Society recognized Pioneer Air Museum in 2016 for promoting Alaska's aviation history and creating Space Adventures, which is in its fifth year as a program.
Educator Mari Ward acknowledged the importance of introducing children to various subjects at an early age.
"First of all you never know where they're going to go. Once they get something in their mind they could just take off and end up in higher grades and go on with it because of something they enjoyed when they were younger." Ward said.
Space Adventure sessions are available every Monday and Thursday, beginning at the top of every hour from noon to 4 p.m.
