Daisies: After a Museum tour, start (or continue) your Think Like an Engineer journey with the Air Powered Car Design Challenge. We will learn about how engineers think and solve problems, and how thrust can not only move a car, but aircraft, too! Then spend some time in KidVenture exploring aviation or on a Museum Scavenger Hunt.
Brownies: After a Museum tour, earn your Mechanical Engineering Fling Flyer badge through this design challenge. Design, build, and re-engineer a Fling Flyer to fly the farthest! Then spend some time in KidVenture, completing the Museum Scavenger Hunt, or learning to fly on our simulators.
Juniors: After a Museum tour, you can earn the Mechanical Engineering Balloon Car badge through this design challenge. Design, build, and re-engineer your car to go the farthest! Then spend some time in KidVenture, completing the Museum Scavenger Hunt, or learning to fly on our simulators.
- Option 1: After a Museum tour, start (or continue) your Think Like an Engineer journey with the Flying Kinetic Sculpture Design Challenge. Use our Vertical Wind Tunnels to create a sulpture that will fly, and use the power of wind to move. Then, spend some time on our simulators learning how to fly.
- Option 2: After a Museum tour, design, build, and test your own balsa glider. This hands on activity is done in our Tech Lab, where you have access to all the equipment and materials needed to build your own custom balsa glider. After an introduction to gliders and how they fly, you choose how to build yours, test it, and re-engineer it as needed. Then, spend time on the simulators flying a motorized plane.
