Looking for a way to get your middle school students excited about learning? iFLY offers both in-person and virtual field trips with STEM activities and demonstrations tailored for students from grade 6 to 8. STEM activities for kids should be both educational and fun, and that’s exactly what iFLY delivers!
iFLY’s STEM program is designed to give kids hands-on experience with science, technology, engineering and math principles and get them thinking about how these principles translate to the real world — and exciting STEM careers.
During virtual and in-person field trips, middle school students will watch flight instructors interacting with objects in the wind tunnel. They’ll also have a chance to predict how fast each object will fly, test their predictions, and discuss the results. Some of the STEM activities middle school kids will focus on include:
Here’s everything you need to know about STEM field trips for middle school classes including how to prepare for the program, what to expect during the presentation, and how to reinforce everything your students will learn.

For schools that need a remote learning option, our virtual STEM program for middle school classes is adapted for digital learning with a highly trained STEM Educator to facilitate an interactive presentation complete with a hands-on experiment. In addition to learning about real-world STEM applications, students will complete a grade-level appropriate project designed to demonstrate how velocity is affected by factors such as an object’s weight and shape. Virtual STEM program students will also receive a flight voucher that can be redeemed at their local tunnel.
