How Things Fly

Young scholars will examine the physics of flight through using experimental inquiry. In this instructional activity, you'll introduce your students to the four forces of flight--drag, lift, thrust, and weight--through a variety of fun-filled flight experiments. Young scholars will "fly" for short periods and then evaluate factors that might either increase or decrease their "flight" duration.
