In this activity, learners explore the concept of how aerospace engineering has impacted sports, specifically exploring the design of golf balls.
In this activity, learners engineer a flying glider using paper hoops and a drinking straw.
In this activity, learners explore watercraft engineering and sailing.
Learners make a skydiver and parachute contraption and launch it. They see that the drag created by air resistance slows the descent of skydivers as they travel back to Earth.
In this activity, learners explore motion and airflow by setting two aluminum cans on their side and blowing air in-between them.
Learners construct and launch paper helicopters.
In this activity, learners construct a paper glider to experiment with aerodynamic forces.
Based of the The Tech Challenge 2015, learners will engage in two mini-design challenges related to seismic engineering.
In this activity, learners explore rocketry and the principals of space flight.
A design challenge that takes paper airplanes into an entirely different direction: a magnus glider uses cups and and rubber bands to create a glider that uses the same forces that a curveball (from b
In this activity, learners will engineer three different parachutes to test how well each one works.
In this activity, learners construct paper airplanes that twist and turn.
In this design and physics challenge, learners construct a cylindrical wing, fly it, make modifications, and determine how the changes affect flight patterns.
In this activity, learners build a miniature wind tunnel to measure force. Learners construct the model out of Lexan plastic, a fan, and a precise digital scale.
This activity provides instructions for making an aircraft that can really fly using a straw and paper hoops!
