Learning to fly

Hawthorne School first- and second-grade students in the Teaneck Community Education Center's Hobby Quest Aviation Program test the model planes they built from scratch. The weekly class integrates math, visual arts, history, technology, physics and many other learning disciplines. Students learned to read plans, make calculations and work with tools and finally flew their rubber band-powered aircrafts. Hobby Quest of Dumont did the instructing.
