School Holiday Programs

A collaborative endeavour, Sci-Fly STEM Outreach has come together with PrimeSCI! to bring exciting hands-on, Aviation themed science programs to primary and junior secondary students.


Aviation Science and Aircraft Hanger Tour (grades 5-8)

Held at participating flying schools around Victoria, this 3 hour session includes:

  •      Forces of flight and aircraft controls
  •      Make an aerobatic paper plane
  •      Make and keep a Scribble Bot that draws crazy art
  •      Go on a guided tour of an aircraft hanger with a pilot

Forces of Flight (grades 3-6)

Gravity is always present, so just how do heavy objects like aeroplanes overcome this and fly? A beginner's guide to lift, thrust, and drag, with practical tasks to investigate each force, including take home paper planes.

Aviation Navigation (grades 3-6)

The world may be full of GPS equipment, but pilots still learn to fly using paper maps, a ruler and protractor. Get hands-on with real aviation maps, learn some introductory navigation skills, and complete a challenge.

Up Lifting (grades 4-8)

Explore the physics of flight, learning from great scientists of the past - Newton, Coanda and Bernoulli. Hold on tight for some air-blowing experiments.

Scribble Bots (grades 4-8)

Begin with learning about basic circuits and progress to a simple robot that you design, construct and take home (Note: this session also comprises part of the on-site aerodrome program).
