The Children's Learning Center

is a place where guests of all ages, especially children and families, can explore, learn, and make discoveries about science, technology, and physics of air and space travel. New interactive displays and challenges include:

Bernouilli Blower

Learn about the principles of airflow, air speed and pressure, and effects on various shaped, sized and massed objects.

Innovation Station

Create inventions, environments, and activities with large-scale foam blocks that encourage teamwork and imagination.

Make-It Tables

Experience the engineering design process by building machines or structures using materials provided.

Dual Test Track

Learn how friction, drag, weight distribution, and gravity affect the design and operation of aircraft and other vehicles.

Interactive Kiosk Station

Explore the four forces of flight.

KEVA Planks

create structures and gain first-hand experience with balance, leverage, geometry and the principles of physics.

Quake Table

Design structures and explore the phenomena of earthquakes and their effects.

Tennis Ball Launcher

Explore the effects of gravity on different-sized and -massed objects.

Twin Air Blaster

Experience how airflow impacts aircraft design.

Wind Trainer

Learn about the science and technology of flight in terms of aircraft roll, pitch, and yaw.
