Web Site of the Week: National Air and Space Museum Online Activities

Online Activities

The staff at the National Air and Space Museum have worked tirelessly to create these nice online activities for people seeking to learn about aviation, space photography, and the basic principles of flight. There are six separate activities here, including Geography From Space, Airplane Anatomy, and the planetary CyberCenter. Visitors should start with the Geography From Space area. Here they test their mettle as they are guided through a variety of high-altitude photographs of the Earth taken from space and asked to correctly identify each area. The Airplane Anatomy contains a series of activities focused on the Wright brothers and the first airplane. Other activities, such as Black Wings and America by Air, take a more historical view of aviation, while How Things Fly teaches students the basic principles of flight. [KMG]
