February 15 | Family fun day for aviation Build-a-Plane

Engineers’ Week brings family fun with aviation by observing aviation and space technology from the 1940s and 1960s produced in Middle River. On Saturday February 15, the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum at Martin State Airport offers a Family Fun Day that transports families in the 1940s. Families work together in a Story / STEM challenge to assemble a student-size WWII Martin Marauder B-26 aircraft, originally produced by the Glenn L. Martin Company in Middle River, MD. The meeting shifts are 11:30 am and 1:30 pm. Eastern Baltimore County was built on the wings of the Glenn L. Martin Company when aircraft production increased in support of World War II. Martin’s workforce expanded to over 53,000 when his manufacturing job opportunities attracted people from all over the country. The Museum’s B-26 activity is a fun family activity to introduce children and teenagers to the history of the United States and Maryland’s contribution to the war effort and aviation. This activity is included with admission of $ 5 for adults and $ 3 for children. Visitors visit the museum before or after the activity with visiting hours 11: 00-15: 00. For more information
