Fantastic Forces

Get ready for takeoff!

This summer, join the Science Center of Iowa to explore the marvel of flight! Have you ever wondered what makes it possible for airplanes to fly? It comes down to four fantastic forces: Weight, Thrust, Drag and Lift! Join the Science Center of Iowa this summer as we take off on a journey to explore the forces that enable you to zoom through the air at staggering speeds.

Using science demonstrations and audience participation, we’ll rethink the marvel of flight and learn how physics is the ultimate ticket to new destinations!
