Above & Beyond: New Flight Exhibit at the Science Center

Passengers prepare for lift off! Above and Beyond, Orlando Science Center’s newest traveling exhibit invites you to explore the greatest accomplishments in aviation from birds to planes to Mars-bound spacecraft. Presented by Boeing to commemorate 100 years of flight, this new interactive experience launches guests into the future of aerospace technology and air travel. The exhibit premieres at Orlando Science Center through May 12, 2019.

“Orlando Science Center uses iconic experiences to engage all ages in an active exploration of science and technology to discover the possibilities available in STEM careers,” said President and CEO JoAnn Newman. “Above and Beyond provides such experiences through hands-on activities and presentations that feature real world examples of science in flight.”

The exhibit offers 5,000-square-feet of unprecedented interactives demonstrating advances in aviation and aerospace, from the first powered flights to the latest innovations for space travel. Visitors can step into a simulated space elevator that takes them to geosynchronous Earth orbit or design and test a supersonic fighter jet to face off in a virtual high-speed flying competition, plus get a sense what it’s like to fly like a bird using a simulation with motion-sensing technology.

“Sparking an interest in the wonder of aerospace at an early age is a priority for Boeing, and the Above and Beyond exhibition provides future engineers, pilots or astronauts with an interactive glimpse into how they can achieve their dreams and inspire them to pursue careers in science and technology,” said Greg Hyslop, Boeing chief technology officer.

Above and Beyond is produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in association with Boeing, in collaboration with NASA and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. The exhibit is on display at Orlando Science Center until May 12, 2019. Above and Beyond is included with general admission to Orlando Science Center and free to members.
