Students interested in science and technology will soon be able to attend class in an old military plane in northern Utah.
The Standard-Examiner reports a Vietnam era cargo plane has been converted into a classroom for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math students and attached to a museum at the Hill Air Force Base near Ogden. Ogden is about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City.
Crews renovated a plane that had been stored at The Hill Aerospace Museum and Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah for decades and connected it to the building. The classroom was dedicated in a May 14 ceremony.
Museum education instructor Mark Standing told The Standard-Examiner that the classroom will be used for aerospace lessons, science experiments, competitions and other activities.
