From The Franklin Institute’s website:
“The perfect complement to this year’s National Summer reading theme, Every Hero Has a Story!
Explore the stories of and inspiration behind some of our fantastical real-life heroes of flight. From Leonardo da Vinci and Amelia Earhart to the Wright Brothers and the space shuttle, we will learn about the brave men and women who contributed to what we know about the science of flight. Investigate the Bernoulli principle, learn how airplane wings provide lift and discover the science behind the stories. Mechanical birds, hot air balloons, gliders, and even a rocket launch are used to demonstrate the forces of flight and the process our heroes went through to test their powers!”
