Connection Teams Up with Microsoft and the Aviation Museum of NH to Motivate Future Aerospace Professionals

Imagine an aviation enthusiast teenager collaborating in real-time with peers to design and construct the airport of the future. At the Aviation Museum of NH in Londonderry, NH, this vision becomes reality through ‘Flights of Discovery,’ an innovative summer camp program. Thanks to a generous donation from Connection, in partnership with Microsoft, the museum received 20 Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 devices and accessories as part of Connection Cares initiative. Equipped with these cutting-edge tools and the Minecraft virtual construction platform, camp participants will embark on a journey to collectively create the airport of tomorrow.

Throughout the summer, students will apply insights gained from exclusive tours of the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, gaining firsthand knowledge of a bustling commercial airfield adjacent to the museum. Debbora Losch, Education Director at the Aviation Museum, emphasized the transformative impact of these Surface devices, enabling young minds to collaborate effectively and apply newfound skills.

Beyond airport design, the museum leverages technology to prepare today’s youth for careers in aerospace. Surface devices will support activities like designing and testing 3D-printed airfoils in the museum’s wind tunnel. Members of the Yellowbird Society, a group of aspiring aviation professionals, will utilize the devices to enhance resumes, practice networking, and develop business cards.

Brian Hicks, Sr. VP of Product Management and Operations at Connection, expressed enthusiasm for supporting the Aviation Museum’s mission, highlighting the role of technology in empowering future leaders across various sectors. Jeff Rapsis, Executive Director of the Aviation Museum, underscored the partnership’s significance in fostering regional workforce development through innovative programming.

In collaboration with Connection and Microsoft, the Aviation Museum of NH continues to pioneer creative uses of technology, inspiring young minds to explore, create, and prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities in aviation and beyond.
