Afternoon Aviators: Echolocation

Saturday, October 22, 2022

Ages 11 to 12

To get into the Halloween spirit, at this month's Afternoon Aviators we will learn about how bats use echolocation to find their way in the dark, and how pilots at College Park Airfield used a similar technique to help them land in little to no visibility. Participants will then get to make a popsicle stick harmonica and experiment with echolocation themselves. 

Participants will understand how sound can be utilized to track location, both in nature and technology. 

Free w/ admission cost to the museum: $2 for children ages 2-17, $5 for adults, and $4 for seniors
