In addition, students will also learn about different flying strategies including the four forces of flight. The children see a rocket launch in another course within this curriculum entitled, Space Travel.
Educational Value: This course is filled with hands-on games and activities that will teach the students all about the construction of space rockets and the rules of flying and operation.
