AERIAL INNOVATIONS (Preschool - Grade 2)

This field trip introduces children to the concept of aerodynamics and the many creative ways we can use air to help us fly and float. By constructing and experimenting with parachutes and “hovercrafts” tested in CCM’s wind tunnel, children can gain a deeper understanding of flight and design principles.

After interactive demonstrations for the Parachute and Hovercraft stations, museum educators help students build, test and modify their aerial innovations. Children explore and experiment with both stations, and are welcome to take their aerial innovations home!
