Program #14914RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 10 - 15 years of age.

Take off with your grandchild on a thrilling exploration of flight at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center. A certified flight instructor briefs you on aerospace history, design and operation before taking you on flight lessons aboard a Cessna 172.


Highlights

• Put theory into practice in a 4-g centrifuge and F-16 systems trainer, and explore modern aircraft on a visit to an aircraft plant in Wichita, “the Air Capital City.”
• In a Space Shuttle simulator, work together to accomplish mission goals, then build robots and rockets and participate in other hands on activities to improve communication and problem-solving skills.
• Round out an exciting week of learning and adventure at Dr. Goddard's Lab, the Justice Planetarium, the Carey Digital Dome Theater and other area attractions.
