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. Kids will have so much fun in Take Flight!, they won’t even notice that they’re learning. In this class, kids will build:

  • Balloon-powered blimps
  • Kites
  • Parachutes
  • Gliders
  • Helicopters
  • Rockets
  • Airplanes
  • And more!

While the kids are busy creating, they’ll learn Newton’s Laws, the Bernoulli Principles and lots of other exciting aspects of the physics of flight!
