Enjoy an evening of dinner and the history of the MacRobertson Air Race as told by Cleveland historian Bill Meixner. This "Great Air Race" was an event open to all countries. Initially there were 61 entries from 11 countries and included Jackie Cochran from the United States and British aviatrix Amy Mollison. These female pilots both ended up as worldwide names in aviation.

The intent of the race was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the State of Victoria. The race itself covered over 11,300 miles including flying over 19 countries and seven seas. The MacRobertson Race Prize was $75,000 and a gold trophy.

Attention All High School Female Students:
Please join us November 11, 2017 for a FREE conference hosted by the
International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM) located inside Burke Lakefront Airport.

The Wings of Women (WOW) conference is geared towards high school female
students interested in pursuing STEM career fields. We bring in professional women mentors from various STEM fields, who spend the day speaking with the students about how they got to where they are today. There are also hands-on activities that go along with each of these fields to help spark further interest. This is a great opportunity for young ladies to be inspired and empowered to pursue whatever their hearts desire.

Upon arrival, a light breakfast will be available and lunch will be provided later in
the day. Upon departure, each student will receive a bag of information from various colleges and universities about their select STEM fields.

Applications are required for each student wishing to attend. The deadline for
applications is November 1, 2017 along with a $5 reservation fee. This fee will be returned upon check-in on the morning of the event. A parent signature is required in order for each student to participate.

If there are any questions, please contact us, Monday through Friday,
