The Science of Flight Takes Off at St. Anne Catholic School

Grade 6 students from Mrs. Troscinski's class take part in a Science North e-Workshop.

March 6, 2013 - On February 14th 2013, Mrs. Troscinski's Grade 6 class at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School took part in a Science North e-Workshop: UP! Discovering Flight in the comfort of their own classroom.

The e-Workshop was delivered to the classroom from Science North via Skype where students had an opportunity to interact, design, and build the basic structure of an airfoil (airplane wing) and make use of it during a live e-workshop.

Students had two pre-workshops prior to the lesson and will be having a post workshop where they will extend their experience by designing and building hot-air balloons.

It was a great experience for the class to gain a greater understanding of the science of flight!
