Lift. Thrust. Drag. Gravity!

Since 700 B.C., flying discs have been making a name for themselves. In this high flying program, students zoom through the disc’s historic past while learning valuable physics concepts. While enjoying the fresh air, they investigate how discs are only able to fly because of spin (lift), angular momentum (thrust), shape (drag) and weight (gravity). With different shapes and sizes of flying objects, participants learn the most effective throwing, flying and catching techniques, gaining a crucial understanding of the four forces that affect all objects in flight.

During this 12-lesson program, learners capture a thorough knowledge of founding physics concepts, capping off the last day with an exciting game of STEM ultimate frisbee to test their newly acquired skills!
