Celebrate National Engineering Week in Febru-air-y

Go up, up and away at the science center! From February 19 until February 25, explore the engineering design process as you build and test your own paper airplane. Then, make a pilot's badge and get ready to send your plane flying. As you test out your plane in our flying competition, you'll learn about the forces of energy and motion. It's a week full of high-stakes competition and STEAM. Get ready for takeoff! 

National Engineering Week | February 19-25 | Free with admission

Explore engineering, experience flight in Febru-air-y: 

  • Test out new airplane wings with Hoop Gliders
  • Discover the forces of flight with Fling Flyers
  • Learn about aerodynamics with Paper Airplanes
