Students identify the desired features of an aircraft and the limits that they, the Wright Brothers, or NASA scientists might face in designing one, and methods to solve these. They review parts of an airplane and what makes it fly. They construct an airplane using everyday materials. They chat with real scientists through a webcast interview and read bios about the scientists with whom they chat.
