Developed and fabricated by the National Children’s Museum, the “Flight Zone” exhibit experience is a comprehensive paper airplane test station that embodies the steps of the engineering design process. A table, where children can create their paper airplanes, opens up to an encaged runway where they’ll test their models from a launcher. As they iterate on their design to improve their prototypes, young learners will be introduced to the principles of flight.

“Flight Zone” is the second STEM collaboration between leading global aerospace company, Boeing, and National Children’s Museum. Earlier this year, the Museum partnered with Boeing and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to open Curiosity Runway, a children’s play space inside Reagan National Airport.

“Flight Zone” is included in the cost of museum admission: $15.95 for adults and children 1 and older, and free for children younger than 1 and museum members.
