The Maine Air Museum is open to the public from Memorial day weekend to the last weekend in September.  After we close to the public  the end of September we lend  four of our STEM demonstrations to schools.  We are located on the grounds of Bangor International Airport about two miles from I-95. Check out our web site:  www.maineairmuseum.com  Year before last, the Oxford Hills District borrowed  our exhibits.  The demonstrations all illustrate Bernoulli’s theory as related to aviation. They educate, amuse, confuse and entertain children of all ages!  They were designed and constructed by two of us retired teachers.  They are designed for classrooms and small groups. They are easily transported in a van and are on wheels. All need 110v  power.  My phone number here at our camp in Trenton is (207) 667-5776. My e-mail is  oldcrow2@verizon.net.   Our newest exhibit, “Amelia’s Grand Tour of Maine” is touring the state. It commemorates Amelia Earhart’s 1934 tour of Maine when she gave plane rides to women and girls in Bangor, Waterville and Augusta to encourage them to seek careers in science and aviation.   Please pass this on to your fellow science teachers.  Hank Marois, Maine Air Museum Director
