    Flight (Ages 10-14)

    Human beings have always been fascinated by flight, ever since the first humans saw living creatures flying around them. For millennia, we wondered how they fly, which led to the development of planes, helicopters and drones.

    Our Flight course explores both the animal kingdom and human inventions. We’ll explore how flight works, both the science and the math; we’ll look at how the physical characteristics of different birds affects their flight abilities; and we’ll look at human solutions for flight. Also, we will create an infographic to show how the size and shape of birds and planes affects their flight altitude.

    This is a hands-on course, so we’ll not only be testing 3 different types of paper airplanes to see how the design and style impact the performance of the plane, we’ll also make wing prototypes to see which wing creates the strongest feeling of lift, force and gravity; and then using this knowledge to create a glider out of balsa wood.
