Fliers ‘N Gliders: Soar into Science!
Glide your children into a strong grasp of the scientific method using paper airplanes

Fliers ‘N Gliders is a fun-filled, hands-on STEM program teaching children the scientific method using paper airplanes over five sessions.

A 75-page curriculum in a heavy-duty binder, Fliers ‘N Gliders was written with the challenges and opportunities of the afterschool and camp worlds in mind. The sessions are scripted for easy implementation by beginner and veteran staff alike.

Field-tested with hundreds of children, this program is a sure-fire hit as children eagerly fold and launch darts, gliders, choppers and more.

The academic content and skills are naturally embedded in the flying hi-jinks as the children learn the three conditions of ‘good science’ and conduct their own original science experiments.

The program ends on a high note as children present their paper airplane scientific findings and participate in competitive flights in the Flight Science Expo!
