FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – In celebration of their new aviation exhibit, Soaring over the North Peace, the North Peace Museum is offering free take-home aviation kits to allow families a chance to connect with local history.

Each kit will include a fun fact sheet about aviation in the North Peace, a rotocopter template, a paper airplane template, and a plastic flying prop, along with assembly instructions.

The kits allow kids and families to learn about the science behind flight and the importance of aviation in the northeast before roads and railroads connected the region to the rest of the province.

Kits are one per child (to be done with parental assistance) and are best suited for children ages two and up.

Kits can be picked up without children present, however, masks are required to pick up kits as per public health guidelines.

There are 100 kits available, and they can be picked up at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum, located at 9323 100 Street, on Friday, February 18th, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, February 19th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. as long as supplies last.

The museum says the kits were made possible with the support of the B.C. Government.
