Icarus is often considered the forefather of aviation and a prime example of why airplane wings are glued on with peanut butter rather than wax. Explore the mysteries of flight and sound with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two admissions to the Noise! and Take Flight exhibits at Lynx Exhibits (up to a $20 value). Children younger than 3 are admitted for free.
Lynx Exhibits’ 13th traveling showcase, the Noise! and Take Flight exhibits investigate the principles of sound and aerodynamics through a plethora of interactive, family-friendly media. At the Noise! exhibit, the curious can calibrate horror scenes to perfection in scream-measuring booths as well as meditate upon the science of turning sound waves into visual ripples through a tube. Noise! initiates also get to simulate laughs, handclaps, and other sound effects while designing a TV soundtrack. Take Flight engages visitors in the engineering principles of airplanes, rockets, and levitating barber chairs. After firing paper airplanes at multicolored bull's-eyes, palm pilots release twirlers over the hover port and launch paper rockets on expeditions through the breeze using ingenious contraptions.
