Prepare for takeoff! In this Virtual Field Trip, students will explore the properties of air and the four forces of flight that help aircraft get in the air, and stay there. On a virtual tour of the museum, they will observe and discuss the relationship between the shape, size, and choice of materials used to build aircraft from 1909 to today. A downloadable glider with adjustable control surfaces is also available, so students can conduct some flight tests of their own!
Note: This program is virtual, via Zoom.
