Physics is Fun at Airkix
Teaching forces, friction and air resistance can often be a bit of a drag. Airkix has launched ‘Physics is Fun’, an exhilarating, inspiring and truly hands on way for students to really experience the results of these concepts.
Working in conjunction with National Space Academy Physics education specialists based at the National Space Centre in Leicester, Airkix has developed a full forces based education package including resources to enhance the teaching and learning of these topics.
Every teacher who books a class to visit Airkix can order a set of resources that
they can instantly implement in the classroom to deliver lessons based on the topics of:
- Air resistance
- Speed, distance, time and acceleration
- The meaning of gravity
- Interpreting distance-time and speed-time graphs
- Resultant vectors and components of forces
These resources draw on skydiving footage and interpretation of real skydiving data, along with the prospect of experiencing these forces for real in the vertical wind tunnel, to introduce and build on these topics allowing a real, comprehensive understanding.
Comprising of presentations, investigations and work sheets, practice questions and full lesson plans (including the theory behind the lessons for non physics specialist teachers), these comprehensive lessons can be rolled out straight from the resources.
With individual resources for key stages 2-4, teaching and differentiated resources for different abilities, this comprehensive package will massively enhance the teaching and learning experience of students and teachers alike.
So now, not only can students experience the exhilaration of skydiving for themselves indoors and in complete safety, but with our resources, the whole experience becomes a comprehensive learning package.
Each student will experience two flights in the wind tunnel, equivalent to almost three real tandem skydives and the same as freefalling a distance of three miles!
The price is a massively reduced £28.99 per person!
Memory sticks can be purchased as part of the ‘Physics is Fun’ package for just £7.99 extra. These memory sticks contain all lesson plans, teacher resources and student worksheets across Key Stages 2-4.
Created in conjunction with the National Space Centre and endorsed by The British Science Association, our lesson plans are a sure fire way to bring Physics to life outside the classroom. Why not enhance our sessions by requesting support from your local STEMNET provider?
‘Schools’ is defined as primary and secondary education and all pupils must be aged 18 or under.
All flyers will be required to complete our statement of risk available online. For flyers under 18, a parent or guardian is required to sign on their behalf on the day.
