San Diego Air and Space Museum

The San Diego Air and Space Museum tells the remarkable story of aviation history, unfolding through significant artifacts of air and space technology. Here, students can see artifacts from Charles Lindbergh, Neil Armstrong, Amelia Earhart, the Wright Brothers, and so many other pioneers in space and aviation. At the intersection of science and engineering, the Air and Space Museum celebrates the social and historical implications of technological advancement. Help to inspire future generations of scientists by celebrating the history and technology behind aviation and space flight.

Ready for launch? Students will take their learning out of this world as they immerse themselves in the history of human spaceflight through the Museum’s newest exhibit, SPACE: Our Greatest Adventure.  Students will recreate historic space experiments, and be challenged to engineer a landing system to protect cargo being sent to the moon, using materials from around their houses.

Is it flying, floating, or falling with style? Students will gain a basic understanding of the four forces of flight, with a focus on gravity, as they observe experiments taken to new heights and virtually explore the Museum’s collections. Students will draw inspiration from plants, animals, and the history of aviation as they build and test their own flying designs, using materials from around their houses.

Everyone is an engineer! Students will go behind-the-scenes in the Museum’s restoration department to explore the hidden treasures of the basement and gain a better understanding of the Engineering Design Process. Students will then apply these practices to create prototype solutions for real world problems, such as sending supplies to distant planets or maneuvering over difficult Martian terrain, using materials from around their houses.
