Show Description:

Flight School is a 5-part series that examines historical, scientific, and technological aspects of aviation and its impact on exploration, communication, commerce, and national defense.

Each program integrates science, technology, engineering, physics, math, and other fields of study. Students meet pilots, engineers and astronauts; and are introduced to museum curators and cool artifacts, as a team of educators identify scientific principles that make controlled, heavier-than-air flight possible.

The series covers the history of air and space travel from the Wright Brothers through the development of passenger planes to space travel and the lunar landing. It also looks at the development of satellites and the recent explorations of Mars.
