Flight MS

Using leadership and 21st century skills, participants study the principles of flight and design in order to fabricate a glider that stays in flight for the greatest elapsed time. The glider must be designed to be launched from a catapult that is provided on-site. The design process is documented in a portfolio that is submitted for evaluation.
