We hope you can join us for our second Saturday STEAM Day Event!  This science and fun filled event will take place outside, on the front lawn of the Air Zoo, and is FREE to all that attend.  Our July event is space themed! So bring your best space helmet, NASA gear, or alien buddy and join us for some out-ot-this-world fun! The event will run from 11-3 and guests will enjoy hands-on activity tables, sponsor giveaways, toy demos, education demos, Fly Buy summer STEM toy sales, food from the Kitty Hawk Cafe and more. We will also be featuring several engineering and science activities that had been planned for the rained-out June event - so bring your white t-shirt and be ready to tie-dye! 

Special Appearances: 

  • The winners of our 2021 Science Innovation Hall of Fame Awards will be onsite to meet with families and to assist in STEAM related projects. Make sure to say hello and congratulate them on their outstanding accomplishments in STEAM.
  • "Doc," a B-29 Superfortress, will be visiting at the Air Zoo's Flight Discovery Center (FDC) July 23rd-25th! Stop over and visit the courtyard for a sneak peek!
