Check out The Aeronauts lesson for high school for a fun way to engage your students in learning about aeronautics, atmospheric pressure, and engineering.
- Use a digital simulation to collect data.
- Use displacement to find the volume of a fluid.
- Describe the relationship between the mass of an object and the mass of the fluid displaced by that object.
- Communicate the conditions necessary for an object to float.
- Communicate the conditions necessary for an object to sink.
- Design and construct a balloon for flight based on the design criteria.
- Research and report on the history of aeronautics (ENRICH Option 1).
- Interpret atmospheric data to determine how atmospheric pressure, temperature, wind speed and relative humidity change with altitude in the troposphere (ENRICH Option 2).
