SEATTLE--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Aviation High School will break ground on its new campus on the grounds of The Museum of Flight on Tuesday, Aug. 23 complete with student alumni flying five or more planes to the site, and a student-built robot assisting with the first shovel of dirt.

The student-flown planes will land at Boeing Field, immediately in front of The Museum of Flight at approximately 10:30 a.m. The students will proceed across the street to the groundbreaking celebration, to be held at 11:00 a.m. at the future high school site, just north of The Museum of Flight’s airpark on East Marginal Way. Students from Aviation High School’s robotics team will operate the robot. To end the program, students will launch a model rocket they built to signify the official “launch” of the new Aviation High School.

Aviation High School, part of Highline Public Schools but open to students across the region, has been in temporary locations since it opened in 2004. The new facility is being built in collaboration with The Museum of Flight. In addition, Aviation High School was the first college preparatory aviation-themed high school in the nation and is dedicated to becoming the premier school of choice for science, technology, engineering and math learning in the region. The new school is expected to open in 2013.
