Inspiring Fearless Innovators
Be a part of something bigger
Watch your engineering skills soar with your own graceful glider. Experiment with paper construction techniques as you fashion wings and loops that catch air and create drag. BE REFLECTIVE as you try different shapes and combinations of paper pieces, testing and redesigning your straw-and-paper-clip contraption to determine which design flies farthest and comes in for the smoothest landing.
We will spend a little class time practicing how to tear tape off a dispenser roll. If you don’t have a tape dispenser your child can easily use, pre-tear 2 pieces of tape approximately 3″ long each.
