Aviation Day

Suit up and prepare yourself for an out of this world experience!

The Challenger Learning Center hosted "Aviation Day" Saturday afternoon. Those attending could experience space mission simulations, astronomy demonstrations, and even take in a movie.

Center directors say the event is great for families, and most of the movies at the IMAX are G rated.

Norm Thagard, Executive Director at the Challenger Learning Center, said, "I feel good about how the kids receive the center, how much enthusiasm they seem to have for it. That is the reason we're space themed. We know kids like three things, ghost, dinosaurs, and space."

"Aviation Day" is kicking off the center's newest IMAX movie, "Fighter Pilot, Operation Red Flag."
