Cientos de jóvenes estudiantes descendieron sobre el centro de la industria aeroespacial por excelencia para el día de descubrimiento aeroespacial, Saturday, October 7th, 2017, y experimentó una nueva aventura con la aviación! Los participantes disfrutaron de una gran cantidad de actividades patrocinadas por visitar la Florida Central, Publix Super mercado caridades y el Aeropuerto Regional de Lakeland Linder.
An army of volunteers provided lessons in meteorology and the forces of flight and hosted crafting stations where learners constructed their very own wing ribs and balsa gliders. 66 future engineers were excited to meet student volunteers with the University of Central Florida chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) who assisted them in constructing and launching model rockets. 114 earnest learners completed a campus wide scavenger hunt and were awarded with an ice cream treat and entered in to a drawing for a free drone.
Families joined us from across Florida and we were delighted to see international participants coming from Bolivia and Belgium. We look forward to seeing you at our next Family Friendly event – stay tuned to our web page and social media to keep up to date on the latest happenings.
