KS2 looks at the basics of aerodynamics; using practical activities to investigate thrust, drag, lift and gravity.
KS3 focuses on how science is used in technology to achieve flight such as in airships, gliders, planes, helicopters, jets, rockets. They will also be introduced to the basics of aerodynamics as well as finding out about some of the surprising events in the history of modern flight.
KS4 uses the basics of aerodynamics to investigate how flying is achieved. It also discusses the atmosphere, aircraft materials and navigation as well as the history and future of flight.
