Lesson Plan of the Month

November 2017 Featured Lesson Plan

The National STEM Academy is proud to highlight a lesson plan each month to share with teachers, parents, and students.  This month’s pick was chosen by Mike Cashman, Mission Quest Flight Simulation Lead Instructor, National STEM Academy.

“The best way to teach any lesson is by giving the students “hands-on” experience. The FPG-9 is the perfect tool for educating young pilots about the science of flight. It is suitable for students from elementary all the way through high school. It is very simple and cost effective to build. All the required parts can be purchased from your local Walmart for about 7 cents per glider (in bulk). ” -Mike Cashman
