Balloons & Flight: Grades 1 - 2

Course Description

Have you ever wanted to see how high can you go? Launch hot air and helium balloons and find out! Construct and kites and planes and perform flight tests. Learn the basics about flight, propellers, meteorology and more. At the end of the workshop you’ll take home a flying device of your own.
