Program explores link between birds, rockets

By From page A4 | September 06, 2013

A Design and Launch Flight Derby is planned from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at the UC Davis Arboretum Gazebo. Participants can learn what birds, bats, butterflies and seeds have in common with rockets, planes and spacecraft.

The group will examine the physics of flight and momentum in birds, butterflies, seeds, airplanes, rockets and more and offer participants the chance to try a variety of do-it-yourself paper airplane designs, and take part in a fun flight derby.

This hands-on, creative family day is co-sponsored by the Davis Art Center. All ages are welcome. For more information, call 530-752-4880 or visit http://arboretum75th.ucdavis.edu.
