CASTLE AIR MUSEUM EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Castle Air Museum currently has educational outreach programs with the Turlock Unified School District, Pitman High School History Department. The Museum Curator regularly conducts lectures with the Pitman High School History classes regarding the effects of air power and its impact and effect on the outcome of conflicts. The Museum also has a program with Merced Unified School District. The Atwater High School Agricultural Department and Welding Shop is involved with the fabrication of aircraft viewing stands and platforms as semester projects. Students are also invited to participate with Museum projects to fulfill their community support graduation requirements.

Currently Pitman High School History Department officials, students and Museum staff are creating the first in a series of three teacher’s classroom guides. The first teachers guide will cover grades 1 through 4 which will be available soon to be followed by grades 5 through 8 and 9 through 12.
