Cradle of Aviation presents Family Soaring Science Night

6 pm - 9 pm

The Cradle of Aviation Museum is coming alive for Soaring Science Night on Friday, May 6th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.

The night is packed with family-fun STEM activities and a star party with the Amateur Observer’s Society. Tickets are $15.00 per person; $10 for Museum Members. All activities are included with admission. All tickets must be purchased in advance, no tickets will be sold at the door. Ideal for kids in grades K-5.

Activities Include:

Day and Night: The movement of the Earth around the Sun gives us day and night. The movement of the Moon around the Earth creates distinct phases. All this motion can make you dizzy! Create a model of revolution and rotation and never be confused again.

As the World Turns: Earth does not just hover in space, it revolves around the Sun and rotates on its axis. To see this a bit clearer, create a rotating Earth thaumatrope of your very own. What's a thaumatrope?

Shadow Puppet Star Stories: There are a lot of stories in the night sky, be a part of making them come to life through shadow puppets.

Planetarium: Light pollution can make it hard to go stargazing, luckily our planetarium can show you the stars right outside our front door.

Activities end at 8:30 and everyone goes outside for:

• AOS Observation: If you want to see beyond our front doors, The Amateur Observer’s Society will be on-site to help you see out-of-this-world stuff... literally! They will have telescopes for you to see all the wonders the night sky holds.
