The Dirtmeister will take a look at early attempts to fly from the work of Leonardo da Vinci to the first Wright flyer.

The program concludes with a blast as we launch one of The Dirtmeister’s own homemade rockets! After the program Steve will be available to meet and greet audience members and autograph copies of some of his bestselling books, including StarsMoonWing-It and Dirtmeister’s Nitty Gritty Planet Earth.
