Downloads for Educators

Fort Worth Aviation Museum offers downloadable STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) material for use in classrooms for K-12. We also have links to many other sources for educators and military historians at all levels. This is a constantly growing and evolving area, so visit us often. One of our popular downloads is our “After Class Flight School” using paper airplanes to explain the science and physics of flight for elementary age children.
