Future astronauts and pilots, would-be space scientists and explorers, and children who simply long to take to the skies will find plenty of activities here to feed their dreams. Every page gives kids a new chance to experiment, question, and think. They’ll learn about Bernoulli’s Principle, which explains the basic laws of flight, and also about gravity and centripetal/centrifugal force. In addition, youngsters can get busy designing an airfoil or airplane wing; constructing a simple helicopter-like toy; creating flight instruments; and making a variety of planes and gliders to see how they really work. Aerodynamics, astronomy, engineering, math, and art: this book has it all!
