Friday, August 23
August 23 is National Ride the Wind Day. This day celebrates human powered flight. So it is a good day to think about flight and the science that makes it possible.
Here are some ideas for your Scouting program:
- Fly a kite
- Play the Forces of Flight game
- Make paper airplanes
- Do an experiment to learn about Bernoulli’s Principle, which makes flight possible
- Work on the Air of the Wolf adventure
- Work on the Aviation merit badge
