Education Groups

At iFLY we have a fabulous selection of educational experiences for pupils of all ages and abilities. We'd love to host your next science lesson, get in touch and we guarantee you'll have a blast.



Flight Objectives

The iFLY STEM Program for High School aims to instill the following in students:

  • Learn how STEM is used in the real-world.
  • Draw and interpret free-body force diagrams.
  • Understand the nature of fluids and how they exert forces on solid objects.
  • Derive equations to represent physical phenomena.
  • Apply engineering principles to think about tunnel design, energy efficiency, and safety factors.
  • Understand variability, uncertainty, and error in experimental results.

See the power of the wind.

Watch physics in action! Students will witness flight instructors interacting with objects in the wind tunnel and will discuss the basic ideas of fluid dynamics and how fluids exert pressure forces on objects.After exploring the effect of an object’s size, shape, and weight, they’ll derive the equation for terminal velocity.

Simulate and test terminal velocity.

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.
