WOW! in the Classroom

Wizards of Wright (WOW!) is a Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Educational Outreach K-12 STEM Program. This resource is for teachers within a 35 mile radius of WPAFB.

We pair WPAFB professionals, with an interest and expertise in STEM, with classrooms to present lessons and hands-on activities. All lesson scheduling is based on volunteer availability.
All WOW! Programs are free.
Please continue to check back for more available demos.

Lessons can be scheduled from August 1 – May 8.


The names of some of our lessons have changed.
