Hundreds of students enjoy Young Astronauts Day in Warner Robins

Anything and everything that can fly filled the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins Saturday morning.
WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Anything and everything that can fly filled the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins Saturday morning.

More than 300 students ages 1st through 8th grade attended Young Astronauts Day.

Students had a chance to dress like an astronaut, see what an astronaut eats, and land a space shuttle using a simulator.

Workshops included making a tornado in a bottle, flying rockets and touring the inside of an airplane cockpit.

It's the 25th anniversary of the event.

Matthew Hall was excited to see the inside of an airplane.

"(I want to) see different things about the airplanes," said Hall.

"Events like this are so important because we are trying to motivate these students to love math and science," said Director of Education at the Museum Melissa Spalding. "And when they come to programs that are fun and exciting and bring the community together, they see how important it is to learn and to enjoy."

Students also enjoyed a visit from Darth Vader and his storm troopers.
