3/13: Women’s History Day



It was almost 100 years ago when Blanche Stuart Scott became the first woman to fly a plane — although she flew only a few dozen feet that day in September 1910. (She later became a noted stunt and test pilot.) It’s close enough to celebrate her triumph, as well as other women who contributed to the history of aviation, at the International Women’s Air & Space Museum’s annual free family day in honor of Women’s History Month. Students from Beaumont School will play the roles of the airborne pioneers, while NASA, the Children’s Museum of Cleveland, the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Rescue & Firefighters, and the USO will offer demonstrations and activities from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It takes place at the museum inside the Burke Lakefront Airport Terminal Building (1501 N. Marginal Rd.) Call 216.623.1111 for more information. — Anastasia Pantsios
