This free, standards-based, online publication, developed for middle school science teachers, explores aerodynamics. From the smallest insect to the largest aircraft, anything that flies obeys the same aerodynamic principles. If we break the word apart, aerodynamics is "air in motion." It's all about the movement of air and other gaseous fluids and the ways in which forces act upon bodies in motion relative to these fluids.
