Class Experience

Learn how an airplane flies, what forces are at work on it to keep it in the air and control the flight. Also, learn how to make two different types of paper airplanes.
I have always been fascinated by physics and how things work, so have spent my life exploring these things deeply. This class is another example of this curiosity turned expertise. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
PARENTS: Some children have a difficult time following instructions over video. In this class we actually build paper airplanes. If you think your child may struggle with this, it is wise to be available towards the end of classtime to assist.
