Spring Break Exploration + Space Stem Live

Frontiers of Flight Museum

The Frontiers of Flight Museum will make the most of Spring Break (March 11th-15h) 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:

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

  • Monday-How is gravity is like a cloth? Learn how objects with mass bend gravity in space using a gravity well and Earth X’s Omniglobe.
  • Tuesday-Learn how the four forces of flight act on a helicopter by creating your very own paper version and watching it fly in our custom wind tube! 
  • Wednesday-Test your knowledge on our solar system’s lone star and view it safely with our solar telescope (weather-dependent).
  • Thursday-Become an aviator for a day and explore aerodynamics with different types of paper aircraft. Continue your aviation journey by exploring Wings of Freedom!

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
