Summer Camp – Feathers to the Stars!

July 28 – August 1
Grades 4 – 8

Have you ever thought about ancient humans, gazing up at birds, perhaps imagining what it might be like to fly? How did the first pioneers of flight create blimps and gliders and airplanes that succeeded in allowing us to join birds in the sky? In the short few decades following, we found ways to fly around the world and build rockets that took us to the Moon… Do you think humans can meet any challenge?

The Feathers to the Stars exhibit, being developed for our new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, will take visitors on a journey of flight, from dinosaurs to birds to airplanes to rockets to ideas that may now seem like science fiction, but may well someday turn into science fact. Along the way, visitors can follow in the footsteps of the pioneers of flight, by building, testing, and flying their own aircraft designs. And if your design doesn’t fly, don’t worry, you’re in good company with many flight pioneers who had to try and try again before reaching the sky!

But you don’t have to wait until our new Museum opens to experience Feathers to the Stars! Young people from grade 4-8 can join our brand new Feathers to the Stars summer camp class right now. They will meet fantastic birds in our Wildlife Center, design motor-powered paper airplanes that they can take home with them, visit the Goodyear Hangar to watch a blimp take off into the sky, and design a mission to… anywhere in the Universe that their imagination and flying contraptions can take them.
