From the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights, this week long, hands-on program will give children a bird's eye view of the history and science of flight. Your child will build many different flying devices and explore the science of aerodynamics and flight with the help of Newton's laws. We don't stop there, though, because we're heading out of the atmosphere with a look at rockets and our Galactic neighborhood!

It's an Up Thing Kids will explore the role that wind and the movement of air plays on simple flying devices such as kites, hot air balloons and parachutes. Children will experiment with solar bags, parachutes and build their own kites during this hands-on look at flight.
Milky Way What is the Milky Way? Children will explore the celestial sphere, learn about celestial navigation and build their own sextant, sundial, planisphere and even a refracting telescope while discovering the wonders of the Milky Way.
Newton's Loco-Motion Sir Isaac Newton was very curious about how things move. Discover Newton’s Laws of Motion in this hands-on program all about motion. Children will experiment to learn how inertia works and how gravity is a physical force that keeps things on the ground.
Rockin' Rockets Discover the stages of rocket flight and how Newton’s third law applies to a rocket traveling to space. The children will build their own Mad Science Skyblazer rockets, experiment with water rockets and stomp rockets during this fun filled day.
The "Wright" Stuff Children will explore the fundamentals of aerodynamics in this hands-on program about how things fly. From the basic principles of flight to building airplanes, and balloon helicopter building, children will understand what makes things fly.
