Join us at this year's Culminating Event!

Dear parents and students,

Over the course of the year, freshmen have been hard at work learning about design, engineering and circuits at the Adler Planetarium through their physics classes. Their design know-how will be put to the test at Operation Airlift, our culminating event competition on Saturday, May 11, 2013, at the Air Force Academy High School.

Teams of AFAHS students will compete with each other to design and build the best possible airship ROV. It will be a fun day that will involve our teens with local scientists and Adler Planetarium staff. Students must register to participate -- see below!

You Must Register -- Get Rewards for Doing It Early!
