Take Flight!

What kid (or adult for that matter) hasn’t wanted to fly?  Kids tie capes around their necks and jump off the highest mound, dream of hang-gliding and being a fighter pilot because flying is cool!  For these reasons, flight makes a great platform for teaching physics.   First, we will learn the underlying principles of flight through hands-on, STEM projects and challenges that explore:

  • Matter
  • Air
  • Wings and Airfoils
  • The Forces of Flight
  • Bernoulli’s Principle
  • Convection

Next, kids will build more than a dozen different flying machines including:

  • Blimps
  • Kites
  • Parachutes
  • Gliders
  • Helicopters
  • Rockets
  • Airplanes
  • And more!

 

Kids will have so much fun in Take Flight!, they won’t even notice that they’re learning.
