    Winter Wanderings with MCGT Homeschool Chapter:  January - iFly


    MCGT Homeschool Chapter has put together another field trip series to help get you out and about this winter - Winter Wanderings! Each month, we'll offer an exciting experience. So grab your friends and come wander through the winter with us.


    Come fly with us! Actually, with iFly,  where learning blows kids away! iFly is an indoor skydiving adventure with STEM education - New to the Twin Cities!

    iFly’s STEM program uses their state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel to inspire and educate students. Trained and reviewed STEM educators will guide your students through an interactive presentation, demos in the wind tunnel and grade-appropriate lab activities. Flyers will also get a flying experience in the wind tunnel.

    Over nine million people have experienced the power of flight. There’s no plane, no parachute, and no jumping. It’s just you, a smooth cushion of air, and a sense of freedom you’ve never known – until now!  iFLY is where the dream of flight becomes a reality.
