4 Forces of Flight & Newton’s 3rd Law

In this activity, students will construct small paper x-planes and fly them by producing their own thrust, by blowing air through a drinking straw. Students will then examine how the four forces of flight and Newton’s Third Law of Motion affected the plane. Click Below To Download The Worksheet

Balance LAV Payload

This test is designed to focus on Orion’s launch abort capabilities and how to successful balance the payload. Click the link below to learn more about the items needed for this activity.

Waves And Their Applications

In this activity, students will rotate through a series of center activities to develop a hypothesis for how sound travels as they experiment with different types of string, sizes of string, types of cups and sizes of cups to determine the best method to transmit sound on a ‘string cup phone’.

4 Forces of Flight & Newton’s 3rd Law

In this activity, students will construct small paper x-planes and fly them by producing their own thrust, by blowing air through a drinking straw, to examine Newton’s Third Law of Motion. Students will design and build a second airplane attempting to improve the design of their plane in order to allow it to fly further. Click Below To Download The Worksheet

Motion, Energy and Stability

Teams of 3-4 students will design and build parachutes to slow the descent of an egg and minimize the force of impact when landing. Click the link below to learn more about the items needed for this activity.

Urban Air Mobility

Air must move across the surface of a wing to produce lift. To fly, birds and insects use a flapping motion to move the air over and around the wing surface. The wings of airplanes are attached to the fuselage in a fixed position. Lift is generated by moving the entire wing and body through the air. Helicopters are rotary wing aircraft; they rotate the wing surface through the air to produce lift.

Movilidad Aérea Urbana

El aire debe moverse a través de la superficie de un ala para producir sustentación. Para volar, los pájaros y los insectos usan un movimiento de aleteo para mover el aire sobre y alrededor de la superficie del ala. Las alas de los aviones están unidas al fuselaje en una posición fija. La sustentación se genera moviendo todo el ala y el cuerpo a través del aire. Los helicópteros son aviones de ala giratoria; giran la superficie del ala a través del aire para producir sustentación.
