It begins at 10 on Saturday on Sky Boulevard close to Halifax Stanfield International Airport and there is something to wow anyone of any age! The fact that humans have figured out how to put something that weighs hundreds of thousands of kilograms in the air and have it stay there is nothing short of an engineering miracle. There will be a team of volunteers standing by to entertain the kids, feed you a burger, and explain how the phenomenon of flight works, so propel your family down there and support this fantastic museum!
