BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO)-- On WKU's South Campus, U.S. Bank partnered with WKU Athletics hosting a "Science of Flight" event.

Volunteers, which include Aviation Heritage Park and WKU student-athletes, worked with hundreds of children to teach them the science behind hot air balloons, airplanes, footballs, volleyball's, and more.

"It's just a great way to get kids out and engage them in the great outdoors to make learning fun again," U.S. Bank Regional President Craig Browning said. "If we can just spark some imagination they can take back to school with them in 2-3 weeks maybe that rolls into the school year with them."

Browning says this event leaves a lasting impact not only on the children but on each of the volunteers as well.
