Design and build up to five Powered Gliders per kit.
Design and build up to five Powered Gliders per kit.Teams of students are each challenged to design and build an electrically powered glider that travels the furthest over two flights made within 10 minutes of each other. The Powered Glider Think Kit contains all the project materials required, including lesson plans, weekly presentations, student worksheets and a teacher guidance video, though some additional tools will be required to complete the powered gliders.
The project lasts for up to nine weeks and there are enough materials to build five powered gliders for a STEM club of 20 students, split into five teams of four.
The project consists of four main elements:
Designing the glider
Building the glider
Trimming, testing and flying the glider
Subjects covered include:
Shapes and sizes, measurements, design calculations, aero-dynamics, weight distribution and trimming for flight.
Cost per kit: £250
