Passion for Flight

Passion From Within

Come and discover the professions in aeronautics through the building of a superb paper glider!

With the help of a 3D tool available on tablets and on computers, the “Passion From Within” quest invites students in Elementary Cycle Three to make their plane step by step and to understand the forces and motion in flight.

In addition, by answering several questions about aeronautics, students will be able to obtain different objects that can then be displayed in their virtual museum. This should make them want to collect them all!

A teaching guide offers complementary activities, videos and even the creation of a game of skill activated by their plane.

The tasks proposed by the guide are:

  • introducing the forces that affect the flight of a plane;
  • building the glider according to the instructions provided by the manufacturing process sheet;
  • designing, sketching and setting up of a game of skill.
