Physics S.T.E.M Education with iFLY
$79 NZDBook Now
Our S.T.E.M. LAB includes:
1. Lecture and Demonstration
The programme begins with a lecture and discussion with iFLY S.T.E.M. educators to introduce S.T.E.M. concepts related to the wind tunnel. Students will discuss the aerodynamic differences between solids and fluids. They will identify air as a fluid and learn that air can exert a force on objects. We will discuss the different forces at work in the wind tunnel, and how changing the shape or “frontal area” of an object will affect its speed in the wind tunnel.
The programme also introduces engineering careers and how engineers use wind tunnels
to test their designs. The wind tunnel demonstration segment uses various objects such as inflatable balls to
show how the “terminal velocity” (the air velocity required to “fly” the object) depends on an object’s size, shape, and weight.
2. Flight Experience
All students are given flight instruction by a certified flight instructor, including an individual flight experience in the iFLY tunnel.
3. Question & Answer Session
Covering topics discussed and demonstrated in the classroom and in the tunnel
4. Group Photo
