The excitement of exploration is coming to the Aviation Education Expo in Lexington, Kentucky. Visitors are invited to step inside NASA Glenn Research Center’s Journey to Tomorrow exhibit to participate in interactive activities from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug 9 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug 10.

The exhibit will be on display at the Aviation Museum of Kentucky, located at Blue Grass Airport. Packed with hands-on educational activities and digital learning stations, the 53-foot trailer is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible.

Real world challenges will engage guests relative to both aeronautics and space exploration. Visitors can explore technology on computer kiosks and hands-on workstations which include NASA Spinoffs where guests can learn about how NASA technology improves our quality of life; a quiz in Sci-Fi vs. Science Fact, where visitors can find out how much they know about space travel and the search for extraterrestrial life; and perform small experiments in a glovebox.

Other activities include a solar system scale, where a person can find out how much they would weigh on another planet like Jupiter; a planetary gravity simulator where guests can learn how gravity changes from planet to planet; and there will be a real moon rock on display.

Visitors can also receive a free souvenir photo from the popular “Picture Yourself in Space” photo booth and pickup free NASA informational material.
