Middle School

Flight objectives.

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

  • Increase awareness of exciting STEM careers.
  • Learn how STEM is used in the real-world.
  • Understand the nature of fluids and how they exert forces on solid objects.
  • Use algebraic thinking to understand proportional relationships.
  • Use decimal, scientific notation, and unit conversions to do calculations.
  • Graph and interpret results.
  • 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.

They will then discuss how the size, shape, and weight of an object affects its speed in the tunnel.

Understand velocity.

In a classroom experiment, students use scales and measuring tape to measure the mass and surface areas of balls.

Next, they?ll calculate the theoretical velocity of each ball and examine the differences between the actual velocities they observed in the wind tunnel.
