How Things Fly


BROADCAST DATE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2000

As airplanes fly, they push air out of the way and force it into taking different paths. That pushed air must go somewhere, so it "squeezes' between the wings and surrounding air. Explore the concepts of Air, Bernoulli, Wings and airplane design. Students will be taken through the "How Things Fly" exhibit at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
