Explainers Assist a Young Visitor in the How Things Fly

"Explainers Assist a Young Visitor in the How Things Fly Gallery"

In the How Things Fly Gallery at the National Mall Building, visitors explore the principles of flight through hands-on learning. Children and adults can climb into the cockpit of a Cessna, maneuver and aircraft with a joystick, test a supersonic shockwave, and compare their weight on different planets. Explainers are high school and college employees who perform science demonstrations and assist visitors as they learn how things fly.
