In this course, students will explore the science behind flight. By designing and building their own flying structures, students will discover the principles that govern the mechanics of flight. As they conduct their investigations, they will keep a journal outlining their findings from experiments, research and other sources. As a final project, they will combine their new knowledge with creativity to create an illustrated children’s book.
