serendipitous journey Posted January 16, 2011 Share Posted January 16, 2011 My DS 5.5 is asking for more airplane/aerospace education. I can find lots of resources for studying the solar system, but he's esp. interested in airplanes and I'm having trouble finding interesting resources at the right level for him. His favorite airplane book is an encyclopedia of flight that his father found, which gives images and stats for all planes produced after ca 1940; the DK-type books have too many different pictures and text boxes on each page. What he'd really love is to learn more about how & why planes work. His father and I have a relatively good understanding of airplane physics but aren't so hot at explaining them ... maybe we should hit Real Science 4 Kids physics first, so there's some hope of communicating how wing cross section + proper velocity = lift :001_smile: I also prefer to have his lessons offline, though I'm happy to research and design them with online sources ... any ideas?
