Third Grade

Students applied the design process to the problem of delivering aid to an area where supplies must be airlifted in and dropped to the ground from an aircraft. Throughout this module the students learned how balanced and unbalanced forces impact airplane flight and how working on a team helps when solving a design problem.  Additionally, they enjoyed a class visit from Allison Sutter, an Air Force Academy graduate and current pilot for United Airlines.  Finally, they had an opportunity to visit Boeing’s Prologue Room and participated in the “Mystery of Flight” and “Adventures in Space” tour
