X-Gliders: Exploring Flight Research with Experimental Gliders

Young engineers build a glider, and they experiment with ways to change the flight characteristics of the glider. There are some templates embedded in the plan that learners can use as guides to cut out their gliders. The templates are terrific, and the tips given on how they can adjust the flight patterns are very interesting. Students measure and record the distance of each of their flights, and they work together to find the design that performed the best.
