The Dart

Here we understand flight and energy through a real balsa wood, rubber band powered aircraft – make your own, test it and take home.

The Dart Flying Machine Workshop for KS2 delivers a lot of skills and knowledge. Pupils learn how to use tools safely and follow instructions on how to make models. They understand the rules of flight and how to ensure their models obey these rules. For pupils who finish early there are extension activities which allow them to build a Mega Dart.

This workshop is dedicated to STEMBOXES – as a science club activity or an extended classroom activity run by a teacher. It takes 3 one hour session to complete the workshop – time well spent, for the wow factor alone.
