This web page contains an index of all topics available from NASA's Beginner's Guide to Aerodynamics site. Resources include lesson plans, activities, and interactive simulations for grades 3-12 relating to fundamentals of aerodynamics and the forces acting on airborne objects. The scope of content is extensive and includes specific topics such as thrust, lift, drag, relative velocity, air pressure and density, trajectory, and terminal velocity. Resources are also organized by grade level.
These resources, available cost-free, were developed by scientists and teacher workshop participants at NASA's Glenn Learning Research Center.
