8th-grade students traveled to iFly Denver in Lone Tree where they spent the morning learning about the physics of skydiving through demos in the wind tunnel and a lab activity. They then put their knowledge into practice with simulated skydives of true freefall conditions in an indoor vertical wind tunnel. Students concluded the day with a visit to Independence Aviation Flight School in Centennial where they toured an extensive fleet of Cirrus Aircraft and participated in exciting flight simulators.
