Girls play Women Air Force Service Pilots during Sept. 9 Living History Experience, and earn a Girl Scout badge

SEATTLE – Girl Scouts in grades 4-5 can earn a Playing the Past badge by participating in the Museum’s Living History Experience program on Sept. 9. During this 4-hour program, Scouts will assume the character of a person who served as a World War II Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP). Each Scout will learn about her life and create a costume piece to take home. The program also includes planning a flight in an airplane that their character flew, and each Scout will fly that plane in one of the Museum’s professional-grade flight simulators.

Participants will receive a Playing the Past badge, program materials and free admission to the Museum. The Living History Experience fee is $18, with a minimum of one chaperone per five Girl Scouts (free admission for one group chaperone, additional chaperones $10 each). Programs will begin at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

To register, contact Denny Smith at (206) 764-1384 or dsmith@museumofflight.org
