Lakeland Linder International Airport, home to the world-renowned Sun ’n Fun Aerospace Expo and Fly-In, will soon have another big attraction for aeronautic enthusiasts. The Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) is launching Project Skylab, and Register Construction is honored to be playing a big role in the development of this innovative new facility.
ACE and Aerospace for the Next Generation
ACE currently operates a number of organizations out of a 14-building aerospace STEM facility at Lakeland Linder International Airport, such as the Florida Air Museum and the Lakeland Aero Club, which is the largest high school flying club in the nation. The organization runs numerous STEM-related and aerospace education programs, plus summer camps, outreach programs, and scholarships geared toward attracting youth interested in aerospace and preparing them for high-tech careers.
Project Skylab will be a 23,748-square-foot facility that will house STEM classrooms, exhibit space, a holographic theatre/planetarium, a cutting-edge simulator training lab, an Aerospace Resource Center, plus new corporate headquarters for ACE. The facility is designed to be convertible from one large space to separate areas for classrooms or events by using movable partition walls.
Register Construction is thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of history in the making, as this facility will help to ensure that our future is in good hands by engaging enthusiastic young people with STEM education to prepare them to become tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. Project Skylab will have plenty of room for formal and informal educational programs to benefit students as well as established aerospace professionals. ACE serves more than 50,000 students every year with its hands-on STEM programs.
