I teach a lively bunch of 6th graders at Officer Donald J. Marquez Charter School in Chicago. When I introduced my 11 and 12 year old students to Fly to Learn, they were captivated. One student blurted out, “Where can I get my hands on this?!”
Fly to Learn is a great project-based learning tool which wraps students up into a real-world problem. It puts purpose and a sense of urgency into learning! I have little experience in aviation, and I don’t consider myself a physics pro, but the material is accessible to all teachers!
