Today we had to change campgrounds because the one we stayed in for the last two nights did not have availability for the third night.  We moved 37 miles up the road to one called Lake Ki Resort.  On the way we were able to stop at Boeing’s Flight of the Future exhibition and spent several hours enjoying interactive activities.

Look how tiny Ben and Tom are in front of this 747 tail!

Ben was able to fly a small high speed miniature quad-copters inside an indoor drone cage  and did a pretty good job.

This was a simulation video of flying like birds.  We were following the birds flying on the screen.

An exhibit that both Ben and I enjoyed (but I forgot to take pictures) was where we used black, green, blue and red markers and drew a path and used a code sheet to write simple codes to make the  little EVO robot follow our directions.  This picture is from the internet and shows pre-made paths.  Each one of the color changes is an instruction for the robot.

We also watched the Boeing 787 Dream Lifter take off.  It is a huge cargo plane that  is used primarily for transporting Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft components to Boeing’s assembly plants from suppliers around the world.
