This national park is located in Tuskegee, Alabama so you can see a lot of places were the airmen were training and participating at. Many schools around the country and world go to the national park to see actual things that were involed during the World War II that effected the Airmen. This park contains many different materials than the type of materials that we use today. This park teachers people the uses of science, engineering, and technology to understand and better manage these spectacular resources.
