Children are naturally fascinated by flying machines….
In our unique, fully STEM-based program, kids learn step-by-step how to build their own airplanes that actually fly…and then go outside to fly them! They build a wide array of helicopters, gliders and even motorized planes. Children take home each plane they craft, and have the satisfaction of knowing they engineered it with their own hands.
Our young engineers learn the physics underlying aviation: the four forces of flight, stalling & diving, and the function of each part of an airplane.
Students follow an exciting, step-by-step process to build their own aircrafts. They start with blueprints, and proceed to measuring, cutting, sanding, gluing and balancing.
Launching your own plane brings a satisfaction and smile like no other. Our junior pilots head outside to see their hard work pay off—their planes soaring high!
Using aviation knowledge, children fix problems they observe in test flight. Is the plane diving, or maybe veering to the right? They know the physics to refine their aircraft.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math—vital components to building our academic and economic future.
The national science education community has set cutting edge goals for today’s children, in hopes of bringing them to a higher level of mastery and engagement with STEM than we’ve seen in science classrooms of the past. Hobby Quest Aviation meets those goals with flying colors by providing exciting, real-world STEM learning experiences that align precisely with the NGSS agenda.
SCIENCE COMES ALIVE
Forget the old-fashioned scientific method! Kids want to see things move, fly, crash—and understand why. While the average kid spends 7 hours a day looking at screens, we empower them to sharpen their minds with hands-on projects that develop focus and build life-long skills.
