Field Trips and Group Outings Activities:

Aviator Sports & Events Center has a new program High Flyers Special Needs Program which offers several adaptive activities to give your students an unforgettable experience.

STEM Programming

Aviator Sports and Events Center will hold 50 minute STEM related activities as part of our Field Trips Tuesday through Thursday from 12pm-1pm.

The STEM component of the field trip is taught by A Blake Tech. The A Blake Tech STEM Enrichment Program was created when Founder and CEO Anna Blake noticed a lack of STEM programs outside of the school curriculum in Brooklyn and Queens. She has been working in the field of technology since 2005 as a freshman in college. In college, she majored in Biology and worked at the Information Technology Helpdesk for all four years. While at the IT Helpdesk, she developed an appreciation for technology and how it can help all aspects of life.

The cost will include all necessary equipment, materials, and staff. Below are five different STEM activities schools can choose from.

All Grades; Science, Math, Engineering

Young Creators will learn the history of the Aviator Sports and Events Center along with basic aerodynamics. In addition, each student will create their own Airplane with the Aviator Sports and Events Center and A Blake Tech logo on the hull. The Young Creators will then test their airplanes efficiency by flying Lego people and see whose plane can fly the farthest.

Grades 2+; Science, Math, Engineering

Young Creators will be broken into small groups and given two random objects. The groups must list words that relate to both objects. After a timed brainstorming session each group will be given additional materials per word to build a bridge. Young Creators will learn the basic Math and Engineering principles required for building bridges. Then it will be the moment of truth, the groups will engineer their own bridges and test out their creations with options like adding weight and lights.

All Grades: Science, Math, Engineering

A few volunteers will jog in place with a headband on while the Young Creators learn about water filtration. The Young Creators will be given materials to build their own water filtration system and test it out by pouring the sweat from the volunteers headbands along with cups of dirty water. Through the science of filtration the water will enter dirty and exit clean. Added bonus they can drink their own sweat of course!

Grades 4+; Science, Math, Engineering

Young Creators will get the opportunity to make their own ice-cream after learning the scientific principles of freezing points and boiling points. More specifically they will learn how salt reacts with water to create the delicious treat of ice cream! The Young Creators can chose to make chocolate or vanilla ice cream. There is also an option to make a cream based ice cream. Note: Additional $25 for this program.

Grades 2+: Technology, Science

Young Creators will have the ability to put technology into their own hands by creating their own sport! They will learn the basics of coding and critical thinking necessary to program computers. The Young Creators will proceed to create their own teams and play with each other. It is a great way to foster an appreciation for technology instead of just consuming it.
