STEM on the Fly

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Teaching Resources
Speakers: Erick Archer, Curtis Brown

In this webinar, presenters will help you take flight! You are challenged to use math and science to take off and fly a virtual plane.

You need just the right amount of velocity, but not too much, and you need just the right amount of lift to fly the plane. You can control your flaps and slats to determine the right amount of surface area for your wings.

The STEM on the Fly activity is rich in math and science. It’s a great cross-curricular lesson that will get kids pumped about flying and maybe even get them thinking about a career in aviation. This TI activity is available on both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ technology.

Presenters will:

  • Share a STEM Behind Cool Careers activity
  • Explore force and how it’s related to flight
  • Show the connection between the math and science of flight
