come fly with me

Have you ever wondered how a plane stays in flight or what the difference is between aviation and aerospace? Join us for a family-friendly and educational experience like no other where you’ll learn the physics of flight and more.

Come Fly With Me
Saturday Feb. 29
2-5 p.m. at Crescent Park

You’ll meet pilots from Southwest Airlines and jetBlue and experience a virtual flight simulation by Vision of Flight, a nonprofit introducing students to the world of aeronautics. There will be kids crafts, tasty food trucks, a paper airplane competition, prizes and more.

In addition, education ambassadors from FIT and Valencia College will be there to answer all your questions about their aerospace and STEM programs.

This event is brought to you by the Community Scholars Initiative, an education program designed to expand opportunities for students in Central Florida to learn more about STEM subjects. Learn more about their educational opportunities by following them on Facebook @CommunityScholarsInitiative.
