Our 5th grade GT students conducted hands-on experiments to learn about the forces of flight. They learned & experimented about drag, thrust, lift, weight/gravity, and Bernoulli's Principle of air pressure.
* I learned how the air flows over the wings of an airplane. - Andrew
* My favorite experiment today was the drag experiment because it helped me to understand how drag works. - Orion
* I learned how drag slows down an airplane like the experiment with the marble in the water. - Bra'Nyia
* I discovered that a flat object took longer to drop due to its shape and surface area. - Elizabeth
