Wings’ Aerospace Science Program (W.A.S.P.) is a hands on, inquiry-based kit developed by teachers for teachers. The kit uses the magic of aviation to spark
students’ interest in science. Each lesson includes hands-on activities to illustrate core science concepts such as process and inquiry, physical science, life science, earth and space science and the nature of science.
