Making Models

Making models is a skill that brings information and data alive. A model is something that has the characteristics of the real thing but is not the real thing. For example, a model of a plane is not the same as the real plane, but you can take a model of a plane into a classroom and use it to demonstrate many aspects of flying to your friends. In this way, model building is a very good skill for discovering and communicating interesting information to others.
