Spring Break Blasts Off at Frontiers of Flight Museum

Frontiers of Flight Museum

The Frontiers of Flight Museum will make the most of Spring Break (March 12th-16th) with a host of fun, hands-on STEM activities from Monday through Thursday.  Ending the week, the Museum will host Space STEM Live (March 16th, 10:00am-2:00pm), an event exploring NASA’s three big questions with engaging learning stations, shows, and presentations, supported by NASA’s Universe of Learning, in partnership with Smithsonian Affiliations. The event is free with paid museum admission and free for museum members.

Since school is out for many Dallas-area students in commemoration of Spring Break, it’s a perfect time to visit the Museum and explore aviation and space themed family activities. Visit:https://www.flightmuseum.com/spring-break/

During Spring Break, guests at the Frontiers of Flight Museum will enjoy full days of family activities:  

  • Monday-The Moon Explore our largest natural satellite with our “Earth-Moon Surface Comparison”
  • Tuesday-Aviation Become an aviator for a day and explore aerodynamics with different types of paper aircraft
  • Wednesday-The Solar System Test your knowledge on our planetary neighbors and design a “wind-powered” rocket
  • Thursday-Weather Learn about the diverse weather in our solar system and create a rain cloud

During Space STEM Live, guests at the Frontiers of Flight Museum will enjoy a full day of family activities:  

  • Learning Stations answering NASA’s 3 Big Questions
    • How did we get here? Learn how astronomers look back in time with telescopes and discover the size of our Universe as we know it by studying the Hubble Deep Field image
    • How does the Universe work? Dive in to the electromagnetic spectrum with NASA’s missions to see through galaxies and unlock their secrets and explore the effects of gravity from things we can see (planets, stars, etc.) and things we cannot see (dark matter)
    • Are we alone? Detect worlds orbiting other stars with NASA’s Eyes on Exoplanets and identify Earth-like planets that may be fostering life
  • Additional hands-on activities
    • Micro Observatory Capture a real picture with NASA’s own network of telescopes to print out and take home with you
    • Build your own Comet and Galaxy Slime Take home your own out-of-this-world creations
