Up, Up and Away

Whakarewa Ake, Ki Runga Rawa

Fly, float or fall? The definition of flight is explored – and beware, this is harder than it sounds! Students discuss which objects fly and how. Paper planes are of course a must, but we introduce fair testing for the young ones – who can make the best plane? How do we define ‘best’? How can we measure that? Students also make a variety of ‘wings’ and test the best shape for creating lift. Finally there is a technology challenge for the older students – can they make their pig fly? Great open-ended inquiry learning here.
