Want to help your high school students build on their basic understanding of STEM concepts, ace their next test, and have a little fun along the way? iFLY’s STEM program is designed to inspire teenagers from grades 9 to 12 to dig deeper and start thinking about complex concepts in a way that gets them excited about learning. Find out more about how your students can watch physics in action at iFLY!
For high school students with foundational STEM knowledge, a hands-on experience like iFLY can solidify an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math that could translate into an exciting STEM career.
During in-person field trips, students will learn how to predict their own terminal velocity using measurements and algebraic reasoning. They’ll have a chance to fly in the wind tunnel and compare their predictions to their actual terminal velocity before brainstorming reasons for any errors. Some of the concepts and STEM activities high school students will discuss include:
Here’s everything you need to know about STEM field trips for elementary classes including how to prepare for the program, what to expect during the presentation, and how to reinforce everything your students will learn.

Looking for a digital learning option? Our Virtual STEM program for high school classes is adapted for remote learning with a highly trained STEM Educator to take your students through an interactive presentation and grade-level appropriate STEM project. Either from home or a group classroom, students will create a paper airplane utilizing the five-step engineering design process: ask, imagine, plan, create and improve before testing their airplane and analyzing the results. Virtual STEM program students will also receive a flight voucher that can be redeemed at their local tunnel.
