All technologies go through an optimization procedure. They get better and better through improvements resulting from the engineering process. The perfect example of this progression is flight. From gliders to rockets, aerospace technology has evolved dramatically in a short period of time.
Use this kit to introduce your students to the engineering and science concepts associated with flight. Focus content on the forces of lift, drag, thrust and gravity. This glider is made from a balsa wood frame and polyethylene clear plastic wing covering. With a wing span of 22 in. wide, the finished glider flies beautifully indoors or out. Kit.
