The iFLY STEM Program for High 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 will predict their own terminal velocity using measurements and algebraic reasoning.
After flying, they'll compare their predictions to their actual terminal velocity in the wind tunnel and brainstorm reasons for any errors.
