Kids! There are so many exciting things happening at the Strategic Air & Space Museum this month that you will be missing out if you don’t come and bring your parents with you. First of all, June 8, 2013 kicks off our June Aircraft of the Month. This month’s featured airplane is the C-47 Skytrain. Come take a peek at our featured airplane on your next visit. While you’re here, be sure to visit the Science Zone, where you can interact with robots and drones, and make your own boomerang! The Science Zone is open every day this month from 10:00-12:00pm and 2:00-4:00pm. Don’t miss out!
Science Zone Note to Parents: The theme for this month is Technology. While your child participated in the Science Zone activities of making a boomerang, and interacting with our robots and drones, they witnessed innovation and applied physics and engineering design to their projects. Extend your child’s learning at home by learning more about technology together as a family. If you have family members who are particularly interested in the field of technology or work in the field, ask them if they would talk about some interesting facts or advancements with your children, and help spark their interest.
