DJ at Kids S.T.E.M. day at the Museum of Aviation

DJ and I were invited to attend the Kids S.T.E.M. Day at the Museum of Aviation with Ms. Capece from our school.

We had such a great time!

First DJ got to look through a couple of telescopes.

Then we went outside and saw the remote controlled model airplanes put on an air show.

Then we went inside and the kids did space math with M&M's

At first DJ wasn't too sure about it, as the math part was on about 3rd and 4th grade level, but once we got into doing it he had a great time!

Then we moved on to learning about airplanes and what makes them fly.
