The iFLY STEM Program for Elementary School aims to instill the following in students:
Watch physics in action! Students will witness flight instructors interacting with objects in the wind tunnel.
They will then discuss how the size, shape, and weight of an object affects its speed in the tunnel.
In this classroom experiment, students plan and carry out an investigation about parachute flight performance. Using stopwatches, measuring tapes, and a scale, students will record data and share conclusions with the class.
