From the Air



Do your students dream of someday flying an airplane? Do they ask questions like, “How do airplanes fly?” From the Air is for you! The exhibit’s guidance-oriented approach uses role playing to introduce students to the aerospace industry. As aviation workers, students get a hands-on experience building aircraft engines out of recycled materials and testing them in our wind tunnels! A multimedia show, a flight simulator, a recipe for success!
