Product Description

Who isn’t fascinated by airplanes? How can something so big and so heavy actually fly? The secret lies with molecules in the air around us. Using Take Off With Airplane Science! from Be Naturally Curious even elementary school-aged kids are able to grasp fundamental physical concepts such as Bernoulli’s Principle and air pressure. Going on a plane trip? What better travel entertainment than experiments and activities that can be done in the airport and on the plane (nearly all materials are included)!

Mini-course is provided as a 29-page PDF including a Science Tool Kit page to collect your badges.
