WOW! on Wheels is a resource for teachers in the WPAFB area.

Use WOW! on Wheels if:

  • You don’t want to schedule a volunteer, but you want one of our WOW! in the Classroom lessons to present yourself or play our video.
  • You want to borrow other activities and materials.

Materials are typically limited to a 35-mile radius of WPAFB; although accommodations can sometimes be made. Deliveries will be made to your building on Thursdays, and pick-ups will be on the following Wednesday.

WOW! in the Classroom kits can be borrowed. You’ll receive everything you need to replicate the exact lesson that our Wizards would present through WOW! in the Classroom. This will give you the freedom to present it yourself or through our videos on your own time schedule.

  • Our kit includes the WOW! lesson plan and all necessary materials.
  • Our courier will deliver the material on Thursdays, and pick it up the following Wednesday.

Please see our WOW! in the Classroom page for all available demos and important information about each one.
