Sign up for a flying summer
Aeromodelling workshops can teach kids to make flying planes as well as understand the science behind it
Most kids love to dabble with aeroplanes — some by making paper planes using pages from their notebooks and books, while others make these from important bills and receipts that parents leave around the house. Now, how about helping your kids turn this curiosity towards planes into a life-long experience? This summer vacation, sign your kids up for a special aeromodelling class where they will not only learn to make flying planes but also understand the science behind it.
There are plenty of experiential learning institutes in the city, who have organised special aeromodelling camps and workshops during the summer vacation. From making static 3D models of planes to making flying planes out of the lightweight balsa wood, or the various shapes of kites, these workshops will definitely ignite the grey cells in your child's brain, and perhaps, set the path for a flying future. the guide has prepared a list of such aeromodelling workshops and camps children can take part in this summer:
