Event Details

From the tiny Ruby-throated Hummingbird to the Bald Eagle, Maryland’s bird species are diverse. Flight is a unique adaptation that birds possess, but how exactly can they fly? Learn about bird anatomy, a few Maryland birds, and the physics of flight. We will also test and explore how different wing shapes and sizes affect flight patterns by making our own paper bird airplanes. Recommended for Grade 3-8
