Science Floor Shows

Super cool science shows @ the Air Zoo!

Throughout the year the Air Zoo's Education Team puts on themed science floor shows for guests. These educational science shows are free with admission or membership thanks to our generous 2022 Sponsors!

Rosie's Riveting Revue: Step into the shoes of a Rosie! Learn how these amazing women workers supported the production of planes, ships, and many other necessary goods during World War II. Explore how Rosies communicated on the factory floor and how they shaped future generations of engineers!

Imagine a New World on Mars: Explore how NASA and companies like SpaceX are preparing to send people to Mars to build colonies and extract the resources necessary to live, work, and play on the "Red Planet". Experience the technology currently used by the Perseverance rover to generate oxygen gas for fuel and life support, fly the first helicopter on Mars, and communicate with Earth as you participate in exciting training simulations and prepare to live on another planet!

Subzero Science:  What is colder than the coldest place on Earth? Liquid nitrogen! Investigate states of matter as we see liquid boil at room temperature and rubber become as brittle as glass. We will freeze things, smash stuff, and pick up lots of cool science along the way!

Super Science of Superheroes and Super Villains Wouldn’t you like to be able to climb walls like Spider-Man? Or maybe you would rather learn the “attractive” secrets of a super villain like Magneto. With your superpowers, you will make objects disappear like the Invisible Woman and create the perfect Storm to blow away the villains.
