Straw plane

Straw plane Project Synopsis.

 The simple project emphasizes to create an understanding about the basic aerodynamics, types of flow and how different parameters are correlated with each other in a single Bernoulli principle that governs fluid flow around and inside the body.

 Learning outcomes

  •  The activity addresses the fundamentals of fluid flow and its types.
  • Describes the basics of aircraft structure and aerodynamics.
  • Understanding about the Bernoulli’s relation of fluid mechanics with aircraft structure.
  • Requirement

    • Age: 7-12 years
    • of students: 30 (maximum)
    • Duration: 60 minutes

Water Rocket

Introduction Water Rocket

The main emphasis is on the understanding of a model rocket, its aerodynamic structure, concept of pressure, Pascal’s law and its application in energizing of the model rocket. Students will be guided in the workshop to make their own water rocket by using ordinary household material like carbonated bottles, plastics files, polythene bags etc to decipher the fundamentals of projectile motion and the factors affecting on it.

Learning outcomes according to national curriculum of general science

  • The activity will be beneficial to develop the concept of basic aerodynamics and its application.
  • Working principle and uses of pressure and Pascal’s law.
  • The workshop will also be helpful to the students to learn about projectile motion, its factors and significance.

Requirement

  • Age: 7-12 years
  • No. of students: 30 (maximum)
  • Duration: 60 minutes

Rubber Powered Glider

Rubber band powered glider workshop

The project focus is to create an understanding about the basic aerodynamics, simple machines, energy, its types and its conversion from one form to another form. The activity relates how rubber band’s elastic energy is converted into mechanical energy to drive a simple propelling mechanism and basic aerodynamic structure to make a glider by using paper, balsa wood, sticking glue and a propeller.

 Learning outcomes according to national curriculum of general science

 

  • The activity addresses the fundamentals of energy and its conversion in different forms.
  • Describes the basics of aircraft structure and simple mechanics to make a glider.
  • Understanding about the combination of simple machines and energy to perform a specific task.

 Requirement

 

  • Age: 7-12 years
  • of students: 30 (maximum)
  • Duration: 90 minutes
