About Farnsworth Aerospace 5-8 Campus

  • At Farnsworth – “The Home of Future Leaders” – aerospace is infused in every aspect of our curriculum. Our dedicated staff encourages experimentation and engages imagination. Our students work on teams to solve complex problems, and each success builds confidence for the next challenge. Other classes and activities include music, art, on-site flight simulators, and hands-on field trips that expand understanding of aerospace. Families are encouraged to learn together through aerospace and engineering family nights and events. Students thrive here through inspiration, imagination and commitment to become a future leader.

    Mission: Our mission is to be the "Home of Future Leaders" where we inspire students to be creative problem solvers and empower them for college or career through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, aerospace, and math).

    Vision: Imagine a Pre-K to 8 School where all staff are involved in ensuring multiple opportunities for each student to experience academic growth in Reading and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Aerospace and Mathematics).

    Pathway: Farnsworth PreK-4 Campus > Farnsworth 5-8 Campus > Johnson Senior

    When a diverse, multidisciplinary organization gets mobilized around a common objective magical things can happen. At Farnsworth we see magic happen every time one of our kids gets into a flight simulator for the first time or has that light bulb moment in LEGO robotics.

    Solving problems is a lot of fun if you have the right skill set. The Aerospace Technology department is where we take the principles from our classrooms to apply them.

    Our robust engineering program puts hands directly on problems to solve them.

    Our remarkable flight simulator lab challenges us with state-of the-art, real-world flight experiences.

    Out of this world field trips and guest speakers ranging from engineers to astronauts expose us to the wide range of disciplines and possibilities that an aerospace focus offers.

    Our Aerospace Technology Department implements a strong standards based curriculum including:

    • Flight Simulators- Virtual Reality
    • Aerospace & Engineering Classes
    • LEGO Robotics
    • Aerospace Field Trips
    • STARBASE Minnesota
    • Guest Speakers
    • Aerospace Family Nights
    • Renewable Energy Challenge Team
