Flight (Fall/Spring)

Students will investigate the biodiversity of flight in nature (flying insects, birds, mammals, plants) and how this adaptation assists in survival and growth. In some cases, groups may also explore ways in which flying technologies make use of properties of air by experimenting with a variety of flying objects including arrows and throwing sticks order to determine relationships between the four forces. There is a pre-trip activity that should be completed prior to the trip if you are planning to use pop-bottle rockets.
