Formula for Family Success

When Kids build an airplane model, they build their dreams and a future.  What ever direction a kid looks at by using his mind, is the direction that the kid will follow.  The purpose of the YellowAirplane website is to keep kids heading in the right direction.  By using airplanes and the whole spectrum of aviation, we can keep our kids heading into a direction of technology and education.  Here's a great formula for teaching kids about airplanes, technology and education.   Watch a movie + Build a model airplane + Go to an air show X  Spaced Repetition = An educated kid. Watch a movie about the kinds of airplanes that you will see at an upcoming air show.  +  Build a model of the kind of airplane you saw in the movie.  +  Go to a local air show, you will have the time of your life and see tremendous things.  Continued here
