Although falling from the sky can sound intimidating, it can be educating to a lover of physics. At iFly, they carry a STEM program for students in any grade. IFly is a place that holds indoor skydiving, except without the sky and the free-falling thousands of feet. It imitates the feeling and motion of skydiving, but the only difference is that it is inside a clear tube being blasted with wind like-air that gives the illusion of flying. The Chandler Education Foundation is an organization that collects donations to allow schools to participate in these creative events.

The foundation is very helpful to many schools around Chandler. Mr. Kenneth Spruell (a Hamilton Physics teacher) says, “last year, they [Chandler Education Foundation] got a whole class to the iFly event.” The Foundation helped fund a Physics class to get the iFly physics experience. 

At the STEM program, instructors explain to students the connection between physics and skydiving. IFly holds Physics events at all of their destinations. It is a captivating lesson that provides students with visual examples. Esther Jung (12) says, “Seeing someone fly in a wind tunnel, then being able to use what you’ve learned in class is cool.” Some students will say that the stuff they learn is useless, but not in physics.

Be sure to donate at chandleredfoundation.org! You can be the next physics class to experience the awesomeness of the full blast wind tunnel.
