Thursday Night Social

fw_museumThe Fort Worth LAC is excited to showcase one of our City’s museums. We’ll be hosting the social at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. We have reserved the Innovation area where our members can show off their engineering prowess.

Current Exhibits in the Innovation area include:

  • Airplane Launcher: Design your own paper airplane and test it at the airplane launcher and see how far it will fly.
  • Air Tables: Design and build a craft that floats on a column of air. Which crafts fly the highest? Which hover with the most stability?
  • Bernoulli Blowers: Learn why beach balls magically float above a column of moving air.
  • Pinwheel Table: Design a twirling pinwheel and test it on a table of moving air.

Start working on your hands-on building, since the Younger Members are planning some competitions to determine Best Engineer of TexITE.
The last shuttle bus from the museum to the hotel will leave the museum at 9:00 PM.

Thursday Late-Night Social
