Welcome to Mueller!
Mueller Aerospace and Engineering Discovery Magnet Elementary is a unique school in Wichita. We recently received a 2.1 million dollar grant from the Federal Government to implement “Project DREAM” which is our new and innovative magnet program. Project DREAM will help us to create modules and integrate science concepts by teaching 21st Century Skills through Aerospace and Engineering themes. These topics are taught through hands-on applications and develop problem-solving, teamwork, global awareness, and critical thinking skills.
This program will engage students in the quarterly school-wide themes of using technology in the implementation of science, engineering design, flight, and space and earth science. Students will have access to technology-rich projects through laptops, airliners, SMARTboards, clickers and a computer tech lab.
This program is the only one of its kind in the state of Kansas, and will offer a unique opportunity for students through our partnerships with the Kansas Cosmosphere, Wichita State University Engineering Department, Exploration Place and many local aircraft companies. The aerospace and engineering concepts will promote an environment that is excited about aerospace and engineering, along with preparing our students to become 21st Century learners.
The purpose of Mueller is to inspire a learning community that creates a safe, diverse environment where high expectations for student achievement and character development are valued.
