Kiwi Crate: Fun With Flight

We started this adventure by using the a box called “Fun with Flight” from Kiwi Crate. Kiwi Crate is a subscription box that comes once a month with different S.T.E.A.M. activities. This means it includes projects that cover Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. This Kiwi Crate actually included way more activities than what we showed in the video, including a kite, a book about flight, and some fun recipes, activities, and stories, to help me explore the world of flight.

You can learn more about Kiwi Crate by visiting their website: www.kiwico.com. If you would like for me to show you more of the cool stuff in my Kiwi Crates, let me know in the comments on the video or on this blog, and maybe I’ll do an unboxing of my next Kiwi Crate!

Fun with My Rocket Launcher

The Rocket Launcher was a ton of fun. All of the parts were easy to put together and didn’t need any special tools. I played for hours in the front yard, trying different things to make the rockets go closer or farther from me. The very first time I launched my rocket it went over the fence and on top of someone’s car! Oops! We were able to get it back and decided to just shoot it a different way in the yard. I really loved this activity and it made me super interested in how people fire rockets!

San Diego Air and Space Museum

The San Diego Air and Space Museum is located in Balboa Park in San Diego, CA. There are tons of planes, space ships, and scenes that can teach you how all about flight! This was my first time at the museum and there were so many awesome things to check out! Here are some of the pictures of exhibits that we saw.

Be The Astronaut

I also went to the special exhibit called “Be the Astronaut.” This exhibit is a super cool and interactive way to learn all about space travel. The exhibit was created with the help of NASA experts, to take visitors through all the steps it takes to get into space. I visited all 3 stations when I was at the exhibit.

NAV Station: Plan your mission…

At the NAV station, there were different videos and activities that helped you learn how to prepare for the mission. There were different things you could plan for like launching a rocket, driving a rover on Mars, and even flying a craft in orbit.

SCI Station: Explore Science and Technology

At the SCI station, the different experts showed you how to use the machines that you would need to for your upcoming mission. They showed why the space ships fly in orbit and the types of equipment you need for different types of missions.

FLY Station: Take Flight!

The last station let you take everything that you learned about to go on your mission! The one thing I learned about launching an aircraft, is that you have to be able to listen very well to directions, and you have to be able to pay a lot of attention to everything that’s going on. It was awesome! I felt like I was a real astronaut! This is a great exhibit for kids, especially if you enjoy driving games and make believe.

You can go through several different missions, so you can have a ton of new adventures in the same place! For more information on this exhibit, check out www.sandiegoairandspacemuseum.org or visit them at 22001 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA.
