Trace the expansion of aeronautics and flight design with the KELVIN® Aeronautics & Flight STEM Lab. 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.
The Basic Class Pack for 30 includes:  Blue Bird Foam Gliders,  Rubber Band Powered Planes,  Double Prop Helicopters, Wing Forming Jig and Abrasive Paper. Extra parts and an instruction manual complete the lab.
Assign teams of two students each to investigate the kits. Students design their own display board or project portfolio for use in the classroom or STEM fair. The display board is not included.
Requires assembly with hand tools.
