Hands On Exhibits

Hands-on Interactives

Enjoy STEM related hands-on stations throughout the Flight Innovation and Flight Discovery Centers. 

Please note: There are some hands-on interactives that are temporarily unavailable as they are not easily disinfected for continued safety.  


Hands-On Exhibits


multi-sensory STEM-based interactives

The Air Zoo's FLEXHIBIT science activity & experimentation stations are exciting hands-on, multi-outcome, multi-sensory STEM-based interactives that are sure to thrill aspiring scientists and tinkerers of all ages! (Yes, even you grown-ups!).

Imagination Playground

multi-sensory STEM-based interactives

Imagination Playground are HUGE scale foam building blocks that transform the Air Zoo's Kids Area into a play space that encourages learning, social development, movement, and above all fun. Using Imagination Playground blocks, kids (and adults too!) can build objects like animals, rocket ships, robots, and also create imaginary places like houses, castles. A favorite at the Air Zoo, our Imagination Playground engages young and old minds alike, and provides a truly unique way to test the bounds of creativity.




KEVA Plank Creation Stations

multi-sensory STEM-based interactives

Temporarily closed due to sanitzation protocols. KEVA planks are unique wooden blocks that have become some of the most popular building toys on the planet! Their unique yet simple design allows aspiring architects, engineers, and artists of all ages to build incredible, gravity-defying structures that stretch the bounds of imagination while teaching core principles of physics, geometry, and architecture. The Air Zoo has multiple KEVA Plank Creation Stations scattered throughout the Main Exhibit Hall, each containing incredible pre-built examples of KEVA structures and THOUSANDS of loose KEVA planks for guests to create their own!
