Learn about planes with Captain Safetypants
Let's talk planes! We'll dedicate 1-2 hours in this fun version of "ground school" for kids, so everyone has time to absorb and ask questions.
✈ Learn about the four forces that affect us in flight
✈ The magic of airfoils, Bernoulli and how we get "lift"
✈ How does an engine work?
✈ Fuel: Where is it? What does it look/smell like?
✈ What makes a plane so stable when we fly?
✈ What do all those instruments do?
✈ A typical flight from takeoff to landing
✈ How pilots handle in-flight emergencies and why
✈ Everything you wanted to know about planes—ask away!
At least one parent or guardian must be present. Kids have a blast seeing airplanes up close, and learn a lot too. This is the precursor to the "Fly with CSP" followup session, where kids experience a free real flight with CSP.
Often the kids who would benefit most from STEM programs are the ones who couldn't afford to pay, so private sessions with Captain Safetypants are always free. Click the button below to sign up:
