    Can an aviation-minded teenager collaborate with peers in real time to design and build an airport of the future? Yes, as part of Flights of Discovery, an innovative aviation-themed summer camp program at the non-profit Aviation Museum of NH in Londonderry, NH.

    Connection, in partnership with Microsoft, donated 20 Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 devices and accessories to the non-profit as part of the technology solution provider’s Connection Cares initiative. Flights of Discovery participants will use the Surface devices and Minecraft virtual construction platform to work together to design and build the airport of tomorrow. This summer, the exercise will enable students to use knowledge gained from field trips behind the scenes at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, a busy commercial airfield adjacent to the museum.

    “Our Surface devices will empower the young people in our camp program to collaborate in real time and put their newfound expertise to work,” said Debbora Losch, the Aviation Museum’s Education Director.

    Enabling students to design future airports is just one way the Aviation Museum is able to use technology to help today's young people prepare to be tomorrow’s aerospace professionals. The museum’s fleet of Surface Laptop 5 devices will be used for a wide variety of activities, including designing airfoils that can be 3D printed and tested in the museum's wind tunnel. Members of the Aviation Museum's Yellowbird Society of young people pursuing aviation careers will use the devices to build their resumes, practice networking, and design business cards.

    Brian Hicks, Sr. VP of Product Management and Operations at Connection said, “We are thrilled to support the Aviation Museum of NH and their mission. As a Microsoft Solutions Partner, Connection is committed to helping organizations of every size and industry—from education and non-profit to government, healthcare, and business—connect with the right technology. Thank you to our partners at Microsoft and to everyone involved in the Flights of Discovery program for helping empower tomorrow’s visionaries and leaders with the tools to collaborate, explore new ideas, and bring their creations to life.”
