Get ready to put your engineering skills to the test in our Operation Airdrop
Challenge! Teams will use a variety of materials to design and build a device to
protect emergency supplies during an airdrop descent. Pre-registered teams of up
to four people can pick up their kits and begin constructing their airdrop device
at 11am. Teams must build their device using only the materials provided in their
kits. Teams will have from 11am to 1pm to build and test their devices. Airdrop
devices can be tested (and retested!) multiple times between 11am and 1pm. Cost
is $25 per team and includes all supplies and science center admission. There is no
member discount for challenges. Anyone under 16 must participate with an adult,
who must also register.
