April's School is Out Day Camp has been canceled as a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19. While we are disappointed about the cancellation, we want to do what is best for the families who participate in our programs. Current Day Camp registrants will receive a refund.
As directed by University of Oklahoma President Harroz, the OU campus will remain closed for all onsite activities through July 31, resulting in the cancellation of all upcoming, in-person Sooner Flight Academy 2020 Summer Camps to ensure the utmost safety for our faculty, staff, students and participants.
As a result, Sooner Flight Academy will be transitioning our Summer Camp experiences from onsite to online over the next month. In June and July, we will offer a reduced rate K-12 STEM virtual camp experience. Parents will be able to purchase this exciting, new virtual experience by the lesson, day, or week.
I look forward to sharing with you very soon a few virtual field trip options in the month of May for you to test how this format will work for your family and friends.
Please do not hesitate to send me your feedback. Above all, stay safe and healthy. I cherish the time I have had and will have with your children. We promise to work with creativity and innovation to provide online education and peer connection vital to the learning of our youth.
Sooner Flight Academy Program Manager
At Sooner Flight Academy, we love to teach kids about flying, but we also do a lot more. We’ve created a wide variety of hands-on programs designed to let students in grades K-12 discover the scientific principles that make things work. Whether they’re building a rocket, learning Newton’s Laws of Motion or discovering the science behind Martian rovers, students will learn to love science and math in a fun and educational atmosphere!
Our summer flight camps—which take place in June and July—are designed to challenge students ages six to 18 to learn the principles of flight through the science of physics. Starting at eight years old, campers will take to the skies in one of OU's Piper Warrior III aircraft piloted by certified flight instructors from OU's School of Aviation Studies.
Sooner Flight Academy's School is Out Day Camps are for children in K-5th grade. Day Camps take place from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and are scheduled to coincide with select Norman Public Schools holidays. Day Camp students participate in hands-on activities, where they will explore, experiment, engineer and engage with scientific principles based on a variety of themes.
Field Trips offer schools, scout groups, home schoolers, clubs and other groups a unique educational experience at OU's Max Westheimer Airport that explores the physics of flight. We offer three different levels of Field Trips—from airport tours to hands-on science demos to launching rockets and more—so you’re sure to find an experience to fit your group’s needs.
Sooner Flight Academy offers many exciting educational programs to schools and other organizations for on-site, hands-on learning opportunities. From single-classroom experiences to school-wide assemblies and Family STEM Night, we can customize a variety of fun physics activities for your classroom or school.
Would you like Sooner Flight Academy to be a part of your school’s Family STEM Night? We can bring a single activity, run the entire event or anything in between! Our fun, family-friendly activities let parents and kids engage in hands-on stations that reveal the science behind Newton's Laws of Motion, Bernoulli's Principle and much more!
