Emerging Technology Institute and Children of Fallen Heroes Join Forces to Support STEAM Programs
STEM Indoor Skydiving
Welcome to our
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)
Indoor Skydiving program!
Our program is designed to provide a unique and exciting hands-on experience that combines science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Here are some examples of the fun and engaging activities that we offer:
Introduction to Indoor Skydiving: Our program begins with an introduction to indoor skydiving, including the physics of flight, wind tunnel design, and safety procedures. Children will also learn about the different positions and techniques used in indoor skydiving.
Engineering Challenges: We challenge children to design and build their own airplane models or parachutes using materials such as paper, cardboard, and string. This activity allows children to use their creativity and engineering skills to design and build their own custom airplanes or parachutes and learn about the principles of flight and aerodynamics.
Flight Science: We teach children the science behind body position and techniques used in indoor skydiving, including balance, the center of gravity, and resistance. This activity combines both science and mathematics, as children learn about the forces involved in flight and how to use mathematical equations to calculate speed and distance.
Team Building and Collaboration: We encourage children to work together in small groups to test and perfect their airplane or parachute designs. This activity promotes teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills.
Competition: We host friendly airplane or parachute-making competitions, allowing children to showcase their skills and compete against one another. This activity combines both science and technology, as children learn to apply the principles of flight and use technology to measure and analyze their airplane or parachute performance.
Our STEM Indoor Skydiving program is designed to be both fun and educational, while also providing valuable insights into the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We believe that children will leave our program with a greater appreciation for these fields and important skills that they can apply in their everyday lives.
