Professor Wingnut Wants to Fly


Learn and play with wacky Professor Wingnut and Seymour the Seagull as arts educator Ryan Sellers ignites an excitement for aeronautics and the joy of flight. With the amazing artifacts of the Air and Space Museum soaring above them, little aviators explore the science of how things take to the air—from birds’ hollow wings to the first aeroplanes.

Generously underwritten by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and presented in partnership with the National Air and Space Museum.  There is no cost for admission, but reservations are required.
