See the Bernoulli principle in action! Suspend light-weight spheres in mid-air and learn how this is possible through the connection between speed and pressure so that even something as heavy as a jumbo jet is able to fly “suspended” in the sky. Through the use of the Bernoulli FLEXCART, students will experience the phenomena of Bernoulli’s principle of flight and Newton’s laws.
Students will learn about the Four Forces of Flight and how weight, lift, drag and thrust interact in order to keep the ball suspended. Context can be given as these same concepts are applied to any plane in flight. Give a hands-on experience that translates to the contextual experience of flight that happens everyday.

NGSS aligned curriculum for the Bernoulli FLEXCART is currently under development and will be available September of 2020.
