Exploring the Extreme
High Performance Learning Activities in Science, Mathematics and Technology Education
Controlled flight by humans was attempted early in the last millenium but only mastered for heavier-than-air vehicles in the last century. Tremendous progress was achieved in the twentieth century in aircraft performance and mission capability through research in flight controls, aircraft stability, and propulsion.
With some simple inexpensive materials, you can mount an exciting and productive unit for children that incorporates science, mathematics, and technology education. The many activities contained in this teaching guide emphasize hands-on involvement, prediction, data collection and interpretation, teamwork, and problem solving. The guide also contains background information about aeronautical research that can help students learn how airplanes fly.
