It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a dragonfly! Have you ever wondered how things fly? And why is it that birds and insects can fly, but people can't? Campers get some clues through visits to the Air and Space and Natural History museums and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. They learn about the Wright Brothers, Amelia Earhart, Bessie Coleman, and Charles Lindbergh, as well as mythical flying characters such as Icarus, Pegasus, and gargoyles. They test their new aeronautical knowledge by building paper airplanes, helicopters, and kites.
