STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
The Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society, operator of the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum, has undertaken a STEM project. We have about 1,200 square feet in Hangar 1, under the wing of our B-29, serving as a small classroom and a hands-on science museum. We call it the STEM LAB.
At present (March 2013) there are well over twenty science lessons to be learned from the displays. Our plan is to keep adding content so that we can change the display from time to time so that each visit to the STEM LAB will feature new presentations. In the few months operation, we have had literally hundreds of visitors.
While the main subjects of STEM are very broad, we try to make most things relevant to aviation. For example, the movement of air is important in meteorology, in pneumatic tools, in heating and ventilation in buildings, it is important in flight as well. Everything that rotates is in some sense a gyroscope, but what roles do they play in aircraft?
