Aerodynamics

One of our artists will lead your class as we explore aerodynamics through movement and action. We’ll beam into your class using Google Meets and lead the session for you. We’ll have a brief meeting before the first workshop to go over workshop details and answer any questions you may have.

After you check out, you will be able to pick your starting date from our calendar.

Time:  2- 75 Minute Sessions

According to classical aerodynamics, it is impossible for a bumblebee to fly”​

See how we act out how air molecules behave on vehicles on a highway

Program Outline

We use drama and movement to kinaesthetically learn about science by using our bodies to model real science concepts.

Step 1: We will teach the students the concept that we are looking at by using diagrams and videos.

Step 2: Students will have a chance to explore the concept through movement and drama – we will be animating the concept and acting it out.

Step 3: As we move through each new concept in your chosen topic, we will repeat the process of learning and acting so that the students can use their bodies to learn.

Step 4: We will provide worksheets for each topic for your students to complete either during or after our workshop sessions.

Learner expectations:

  1. Provide evidence that air takes up space and exerts pressure, and identify examples of these properties in everyday applications
  2. Provide evidence that air is a fluid and is capable of being compressed, and identify examples of these properties in everyday applications
  3. Describe and demonstrate instances in which air movement across a surface results in lift – Bernoulli’s principle
  4. Recognize that in order for devices or living things to fly, they must have sufficient lift to overcome the downward force of gravity
  5. Identify adaptations that enable birds and insects to fly
  6. Describe the means of propulsion for flying animals and for aircraft
  7. Recognize that streamlining reduces drag, and predict the effects of specific design changes on the drag of a model aircraft or aircraft components
  8. Recognize that air is composed of different gases, and identify evidence for different gases. Example evidence might include: effects on flames, the “using up” of a particular gas by burning or rusting, animal needs for air exchange
Classroom or Group Setting:
  • Smartboard or projector or TV
  • Internet access and Google Meets
  • One computer with working microphone and webcam
  • 30 minute Meet & Greet session with your Trickster to work out details
  • Please move all chairs and desks aside to create a large open space in your room
  • Print out 1 worksheet per student
  • Willingness to provide feedback to Trickster

What Teachers are Saying

It works because students better remember what they actually do. We can come closer to a more complete understanding of how things work by acting them out.

It enhances all student learning by providing a methodology for kinaesthetic learning.
