  1. Paper Airplane Design Station: Students can explore the forces of flight by designing and testing different paper airplane models. They can experiment with different wing shapes, sizes, and angles to understand how these factors affect flight.

  2. Flight Simulator Station: This station can have a STEM element by providing students with access to flight simulators or computer programs that simulate flying experiences. Students can learn about the principles of flight by virtually piloting different aircraft and observing how various forces, such as lift and drag, affect their flight.

  3. Balloon Rocket Station: This station can be a hands-on activity where students create balloon rockets using balloons, string, and straws. They can investigate how the force of air escaping from the balloon propels the rocket forward, demonstrating Newton’s third law of motion.

  4. Kite Making Station: Students can learn about the forces of flight by constructing their own kites. They can experiment with different materials, shapes, and tail designs to understand how these factors affect the kite’s ability to stay aloft and maneuver in the air.

  5. Flight Path Mapping Station: This station can have a STEM element by incorporating technology such as drones or remote-controlled airplanes. Students can learn about flight paths and navigation by using these devices to map out flight routes and observe how different factors, such as wind direction and speed, affect the aircraft’s trajectory.
