The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

St. Louis Science Center First Friday in March Offers Space Activities for the Whole Family

By Carmelo Turdo
The St. Louis Science Center hosted its March First Friday event last week as an on-going promotion of Star Trek, The Exhibition.  The monthly event provides a variety of science education activities for all ages in the James S. McDonnell Planetarium and the main Science Center building across Highway 40 from Forest Park.  Even outside, members of the St. Louis Astronomical Society offered telescope viewing of the night sky to visitors.  Of course, throughout the evening, Star Trek, The Exhibition, was open at a discount admission rate.  Here are some scenes from this month's First Friday event:
