Date & Time:             Saturday, July 16, 2016, 10-11:30 a.m.

Location:                    The Lyceum: Alexandria’s History Museum, 201 South Washington Street, Alexandria, VA  22314


Celebrate the 107th Anniversary of Orville Wright’s historic flight from Fort Myer to Alexandria and test the basic principles of flight!  Experiment with forces – gravity, lift, drag, and thrust – and make two kinds of paper airplanes.  Like the Wright brothers, work together as a family to create a hypothesis and conduct test flights to learn which design is the best!

Family Fun Days are designed to engage the entire family, recommended for ages 4 and up.  Contact The Lyceum’s Education Coordinator with additional questions at 703.746.4994.
