Grades: 7th – 9th
With an emphasis on FUN, you will enjoy performing many simple experiments that demonstrate the fundamental principles involved with both lighter-than-air and heavier-than-air flight. For example, you will build and fly a Rogallo-wing hang glider, as well as paper and balsa-wood airplanes, while learning about control surfaces and their functions. You will perform wind tunnel tests on wing sections you make yourself. You will also make water bottle rockets and hand-launched helicopters.
Subjects Covered: Aeronautics and Physics.
