Launch Lab 

When: Ongoing

Your kids already sprint straight to the Aerospace exhibit at the N.C. Museum of Life and Science. Now they'll take a new trajectory into the Launch Lab, a set of 12 interactive stations involving principles of flight and gravity that opens on Saturday and continues through the summer. They'll build flying machines and test them with mechanical launchers, all while secretly learning science and math skills. They can find their house or other famous landmarks at a satellite-mapping table. And those parents among us who consider themselves to be minor Gretzkys at air hockey might hip-check the kids aside to monopolize the hover tables. —Chris Vitiello
