Mechanical Engineering: Fling Flyer
Work like an engineer to create a Fling Flyer, an airplane you’ll make, and explore what keeps it and other things, such as birds, planes, and space ships, in the air.
- Learn about forces that affect flight
- Design and build a Fling Flyer
- Test your Fling Flyer
- Analyze and share your results
- Brainstorm ways to improve your design
When you’ve completed this kit, you’ll have learned about the forces that affect flight as you design, build, and test a Fling Flyer. You’ll know how to design an investigation and fine-tune your design after testing it, just like engineers.
