Aviation Exploration Day was a Hit!


  • Noah Hassenzahl, 10, of Adrian displays his prize for winning the rocket launch.


    ST JOHNS – Over 350 people spent September 7 at Aviation Exploration Day, hosted by the IQhub, the learning center featuring agricultural history and innovation.


    The IQhub is housed inside of AgroLiquid in St Johns, and the parking lot was filled with kites, hot air balloon baskets, drones, and rocket launches.


    Wendy Hassenzahl of Adrian said, “We drove an hour and a half to attend Aviation Exploration Day – and it was worth it. We got there when it started and stayed until the very end, and even then, my kids didn’t want to leave.  My son Noah even got to participate in the rocket building and launch.  He learned a lot through the process and loved watching it launch.  We had a great time.”


    Inside the IQhub featured even more flight-related activities, like Potter Park birds, a mobile planetarium, and paper airplane flying.  Local author Dean Feldpausch hosted a display of historical aviation items related to his book, ‘The Batman and the Ballerina: The Amazing Life and Love of Clem Sohn and Margot Fonteyn.’


    Attendee Steve Thalison particularly appreciated the exhibit.  He said, “This was a great opportunity for both of my young boys to learn about various aspects of flight, from Oscar the great horned Owl, to Clem Sohn the Michigan Batman.”


    Visitors were also able to fly RC planes, see a working beehive, plus enjoy face painting and food trucks.  The event was in conjunction with the IQhub’s guest exhibit, Aviation Exploration.  The guest exhibit is the third in a series of exhibits hosted by the IQhub, following A Salute to the Military, and Muscles, Music & More.


    Marcy Powelson of St Johns enjoys the events.  “My family loves when the IQhub opens their doors to the community.  Aviation Exploration Day was one for the books! My five and two-year-old were both interested at every sensory level.  Mini airplanes, kites, animals, food trucks – these all equal smiles, memories, and great naps.”
