Now Flying Like a Superhero with Kids from High Aspirations
The Rod Streater Foundation and iFLY Indoor Skydiving Make The Dream of Flight a Reality
Overland Park, KS June 21, 2016
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rod Streater continued his “Where’s Streater?” journey this time taking flight in the indoor skydiving facility at iFLY with kids from High Aspirations. At iFLY, Where’s Streater was blown away – literally. It was thrilling. It was amazing. Rod and the kids experienced the feeling of freefall as they floated on a smooth cushion of air. There was no parachute, no jumping, and nothing attaching them to planet Earth. It was just FLYING in the air in a vertical wind tunnel. With Rod’s love of science, iFLY was the perfect destination for Where’s Streater? In addition to flying, the kids were immersed in a pre-flight STEM educational program, conducting several experiments within the chamber and learned first-hand how to use their bodies mid-flight to apply the concepts just learned in the classroom. Where’s Streater? is helping get kids excited about science by bringing science to life and that in itself is a Thrill. Following their flights, everyone was treated to a pizza lunch provided by Old Town Pizza, Overland Park, KS.
