Afternoon Aviators: Navigation Through History
Saturday, May 28, 2022
Join us this month as the staff explains how pilots navigated before GPS and Map apps. Participants will learn to recognize physical map symbols from the past and present of aviation and navigate between these in order to reach a final destination with nothing but dead reckoning and a simple compass.
After a quick lesson about aviation, participants will be able to put their newfound knowledge to the test with a hands-on activity. This program is ideal for learners 8-12 years of age and is FREE with museum admission.
