Twelve new stations with dozens of activities use common materials in unexpected ways to design and test flying creations and explore the principles of flight, gravity and airflow along the way.
Build you own flying machines and explore how design decisions affect flight using a series of compressed air and mechanical launchers, hover tables and wind tubes to prepare for blast off. In addition to Launch Lab’s new interactive stations the Museum’s Aerospace Exhibit also features a satellite mapping table where you can spot familiar landmarks across the country, a command module for imaginary play and the opportunity to test your hand at docking a satellite.
