Students will learn and apply the principles of flight as they build and test gliders, rubber band powered planes and helicopter rotors. Explore the force of lift by forming an airfoil glider wing. Control flight by adjusting wing flaps. Set the dihedral wing angle and wind the propeller that provides thrust for a balsa plane. Assemble the double rotors to fly the helicopter simulator.
Students can design their own display board (like sample right) for use in the classroom or a S.T.E.M. fair with the reusable corrugated plastic board that is included.
Class pack includes  Team Packs (842484) plus an additional Reusable Corrugated Plastic Display Board.
Team Packs include Reusable Corrugated Plastic Display Board,  Blue Bird Foam Glider Kits,  Rubber Band Powered Plane Kits,  Double Prop Helicopter Kits, Wing Forming Jig and Abrasive Paper. Extra parts and an instruction manual complete the lab. All kits require assembly with hand tools.
