TROY — WACO Learning Center, 1865 S. County Road 25A, has announced a new aeronautical program designed by NASA for homeschool families with early learners.
Fun with Flight is a collection of six STEM-learning modules based on children’s books. Each module focuses on a single children’s book, followed by a STEM thematic lesson. Hands-on activities will engage the children as they make discoveries about form and function by looking at gliders in nature, sinking and floating by looking at balloons, fluid thickness and drag by looking at parachutes, surface area and lift by looking at kites, force and thrust by looking at helicopters and airplanes, and geography and global trade by lookin at world flyers.
These six lessons will take place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 13, 15, 20, 22, 27 and 29. A $35 materials fee will cover all six modules. Parents can register children 6-8 by calling 937-335-9226.
