This lesson supports the Engineering in Elementary Adventures Flying Technologies curriculum, created by Museum of Science in Boston. The term lift can be confusing. While lift can refer to objects like airplanes literally being lifted in the air, lift is technically a force created when a solid object moves through a fluid (and air is considered a fluid)! If kids are creating discs that spin, then they are achieving lift, even if the discs are not flying high up into the air.
