Kwun Tong DSS Secondary School Mu Kwong English College has introduced a new innovative technology subject "SPACE M" regular flight course in Secondary 2. The key teaching contents include aviation, astronomy, cosmic exploration, star observation, position identification, solar observation, and observation of deep sky objects and the Milky Way.

In order to tie in with the relevant themes, the school used the quality education fund of about 600,000 yuan to build a new aviation teaching room "Wentian Pavilion", where students can learn about the take-off speed of small aircraft, explore the effect of flaps on lift during take-off and landing, and go to the simulated driving. A taste of the actual operation of the device.


According to the school, the two major themes of the "SPACE M" flight course include "Above the Ground Classroom" and "Space Exploration". Through the professional astronomical telescope installed in the school, students can watch the solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, Jupiter and Saturn on the campus.

Zhang Yongfeng, Principal Vice Principal of Muguang English College, hopes that through relevant courses and learning opportunities, students can broaden their horizons and train their thinking, so that students can begin to understand career planning and experience the profession of flying at the junior high school level, which will help them develop in the aviation industry in the future. ; At the same time, it is also hoped that through the new curriculum, students will develop the ability to discover and solve difficulties, use scientific knowledge to change the world, and use creativity to change the development vision of the world aviation industry.

Introduce the principle of flight with a small aircraft model

The "Off-the-Ground Classroom" uses various aircraft models in the newly-added aviation teaching room "Wentian Pavilion" to introduce the history of flight development, the structure of the aircraft, the functions of indicator lights and various components. airplane model.

The classroom introduced the principle of aircraft flight "Bernoulli's Law", and explained the flight principle by using a wind tunnel model, and explained the flight principle of hot air balloons and airships.

The school said that students can conduct different experiments on their own to understand the take-off speed of small aircraft, explore the effect of flaps on lift during take-off and landing, and experience the actual operation of the simulator, including preparations before take-off, take-off and landing. , to understand the function of each button and the purpose of the inspection steps.

In order to strengthen the creative or creative elements, the school has specially set up a "Paper Airplane Competition".

Space exploration includes observing deep sky objects and the Milky Way

In the school-based "SPACE M" flight course, teachers will ask open-ended questions to students about any unexpected situations that may occur during flight, which will trigger thinking and train their problem-solving skills: if the take-off runway is too short, the plane is not fast enough to take off and prepare to fall off a cliff , analyze the reasons for the take-off failure; students can think about how to improve the aircraft design, so that it can overcome this difficulty.

As for the teaching content of space exploration, it includes the meaning of space exploration, exploring the possibility of space colonies, learning to observe stars, observing deep-sky objects and the Milky Way, understanding the principles of satellite orbits, etc. The course will also cover the current satellite development in the Mainland, Beidou Navigation systems, space security, privacy issues, space junk, mainland research and exchanges, etc.

Au Dajiang, Director of Innovation and Technology Education at Muguang English College, said that in the future, he will continue to enrich the school-based aviation and astronomy courses, such as adding astrophotography, studying deep sky astrophotography, food science, etc., and infiltrating the content into interdisciplinary or cross-unit fields.
