Davea students) As you go through the various hands-on activities,
think about the following questions: What makes an airplane fly? How
does aircraft design affect an airplane's performance in the air? What
is the impact on the airplane's flight if parts of the engine begin to
Day 1: Introduction to this
Day 2-3: Bernoulli's Principle
Conduct various experiments to investigate the relationship between
pressure and velocity and describe its effects on aircraft performance.
Day 4-5: Aerodynamics Forces--What
makes an airplane fly
Conduct research and hands-on experiments to explore the four forces of
flight: lift, gravity, thrust, and drag. Explore how aircraft design
affects an airplane's performance in the air.
