Roper Mountain Science Center is going full throttle this summer with over 130 sessions of summer camps for students completing K4 – 12th grade. Middle school students spent a week learning about aviation history, the physics of flight, and the design and maintenance of aircraft. The camp ended on Friday with a trip to the Greenville Downtown Airport to see and work with airplanes up close, visit the air traffic control tower, go behind the scenes of an airplane maintenance shop and work one-on-one with a pilot before going up on a flight. It was a beautiful day and the campers went up in pairs with a pilot and an RMSC instructor and enjoyed a 30-minute flight around Greenville. Special thanks to the Greenville Downtown Airport and Airwolf Aviation!
