Learn about the word of satellites during Family Day at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

Family Day at the Air Force Museum: Globe Trotting

Learn about the fascinating world of satellites – both natural and man-made – as we take a close look at how GPS works through fun demos and hands-on activities on Feb. 17 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

Visitors can learn why satellites spin, how a GPS unit works, how an object orbits the planet, and play a version of skee ball that demonstrates the path of an object in orbit.

Several special presentations on satellites are also being offered. At 11:30 a.m., visitors are invited to the STEM Learning Node in the Global Reach Gallery to hear about spy satellites and at 1:30 p.m. to hear about weather satellites.  Both presentations will last about 45 minutes each.

“Storytime” begins at 11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. in the STEM Learning Node in the Presidential Gallery. Preschool and primary-grade children are invited to hear a story about Sammy the Satellite and make their own paper craft.

All activities are free, and no advanced reservations are necessary.
