AOPA STEM Class Studies Propellers and Thrust

Mrs. Bohn’s AOPA STEM Class explored the concept of thrust. They assembled their balsa wood rubber band airplanes and wound the propeller both clockwise and counterclockwise to make observations about the propeller’s shape in relation to thrust. The practical experience helped them understand how propellers generate thrust and Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
