"Dream Flight USA STEM Shuttle," a hands-on learning tool, on display at the Wisconsin Center

MILWAUKEE -- A unique shuttle that teaches children about science, technology, engineering and math has landed in downtown Milwaukee.

The "Dream Flight USA STEM Shuttle" is on display at the Wisconsin Center for the Wisconsin Association of School Boards 2016 Annual Convention, which is taking place from January 20th through the 22nd.

The shuttle travels around to schools, and is used as a hands-on learning tool.

Students can use a mechanical arm, design a floor plan for a space station, demonstrate the effects of a depleted ozone layer, and create solar power.


"Getting them thinking about -- 'what do I have to look forward to? What is out there that I would love to do?' Whatever it is, find something that you enjoy. Follow that dream and go ahead and explore it do it," Sharon Ryan said.

Students can also create a meal promoting healthy teeth and gums, test their muscles on strength meters and experience the difficulty of working in space.
