Featured Activity

Create your own Bunny Copter with a fun, quick, hands-on STEM activity, and make a souvenir to take home with you after the fair. In a short period of time, you’ll get to make a flying copter, observe it in action, and think about the “what if” questions—What if we reverse the blades? What if we add more blades? How will this affect its flight? By asking questions and encouraging experimentation, you can keep the learning going at home.
