Explore the fun of science, technology, engineering, art, and math through hands-on activities
Summer may signal the end of school for D.C. area students, but it is still a time when kids and families can learn — and have fun while doing it! Visit the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center for an engaging day of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). The accomplishments of the first century of flight — and the groundbreaking achievements currently underway in aviation, human spaceflight, and planetary exploration -- are not possible without STEAM principles. Explore this intersection of STEAM and aerospace with hands-on activities and STEAM professionals working in the field.
