Aviation Day Camp
Flight and Motion
Soar with the science of the skies!
Entering Grades K-5
Full and Half Day Available
August 19-23, 2019
December 26-27, 2019*
Embark on a journey into the science of flight! Experiment with the enormous force of air pressure, build and fly model aircraft, explore aviation weather and discover the amazing ocean of air that makes flight possible!
Assemble and test working hovercraft, helicopters, airplanes, balloons and rockets. Launch them through the air using Newton’s Laws of Motion and Bernoulli’s Principle, then recover them to fly again.
Measure the weather and identify clouds of all shapes and sizes. Experiment with the forces in a thunderstorm, create a working tornado model, and investigate how freezing winter weather affects aircraft operations. Even have a taste of life on the wing with a spectacular live bird demonstration in an exceptional airborne adventure.
