The Legend of the Hummingbird
One day, a long time ago and in a faraway place, or so the legend goes, there was a huge forest fire that was raging the countryside. All the animals were terrified, running around in circles, screaming, crying and helplessly watching the impending disaster.
But there in the middle of the flames, and above the cowering animals, was a tiny hummingbird busy flying from a small pond to the fire, each time fetching a few drops with its beak to throw on the flames. And then again And then again.
After a while, an old grouchy armadillo, annoyed by this ridiculous useless agitation on the part of the hummingbird, cried out: “Tiny bird! Don’t be a fool. It is not with those miniscule drops of water one after the other that you are going to put out the fire and save us all! ”
To which the hummingbird replied, “Could be, but I’m going to do my bit”.
“We do not pretend to change everything, far from it but in any case, we decided to contribute to the change we wanted to see…”
Around the world, the use of sailing boats for fishing is widespread.
We will show through experiments, the parallels on the physical laws that can be done between a sailing boat and a plane: in order to inspire the pupils to other horizons.
