Space: Our Greatest Adventure will be closed the week of May 13th.

Fly Your Ride! Flying Car Competition

Build a flying car!

Sounds complicated? It’s not.

With the support of SDG&E, the ISTAT Foundation, and the Kenneth T. & Eileen L. Norris Foundation, we’re looking for students in grades 6-12 who want to build a vehicle no larger than a shoebox, launch it down a ramp, and see if it can jump a gap. It’s fun, it’s creative, and you don’t have to be a science fair genius to come up with a winning entry. We’ll give you feedback, create opportunities to talk to experts, and give away great prizes.
