Principles of Flight

Moving MattersKC - Harlan Brownlee

Working with the four forces of flight; lift, weight, thrust, and drag, students are introduced to the principles of flight through dance.  Using their bodies as a way to demonstrate their understanding, students explore the physics that govern flight and the control surfaces and parts of airplanes that control the motion of an airplane through space.


Please wear comfortable clothing for movement!
