The iFLY STEM Program for Middle School aims to instil 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 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.
