The X-1 Paper Glider Kit

After reading an interesting account of how the X-1 aircraft was designed, built, and utilized, young engineers try their hand at constructing a paper glider version of the airplane. They cut out the plane out of a nicely designed template. They must locate the glider's center of gravity, which will be an important point to find in order to maximize their glider's potential. This fine science lesson plan should be exciting and engaging for your class. Very good!
