Violet the Pilot

Meet Violet Van Winkle, an extraordinary engineer and pilot!

In our first MYST session over 60 families from the school joined us to read Violet the Pilot.

The story is about a young girl with a gift for engineering, who uses her creativity and hard work to build flying machines. If you’d like to get your hands on a copy of the book, it’s available here.

After the story, we built our own aeroplanes out of paper. We’ve made the activities freely available and you can download the templates and instructions by clicking here and here.

For more detailed instructions, activities and a link to the story, go to our Make paper aeroplanes STEM at home page.
