Great Website. I spent about an hour looking around and browsing the material.
I plan on using this in my classroom. My students can access the online
learning link and review material on lift, weight, thrust, and drag. The
quality of content is obviously very good because the source is so reputable. I
really do believe my students will benefit from this site. There are some fun
interactive activities here and I believe that will definitely keep their
attention and help them acquire a higher level of understanding with this
complex material.

Technical Remarks:

No difficulty with navigating the site, there is a very good interface and
logical organization of material. Middle school students may need to be guided
to specific locations, but once there they should be able to browse on their own
and be successful in finding appropriate information.
