Using the Engineering Design Process, students will develop and build a shoebox glider, and then improve it in terms of aircraft and wing materials, shapes, and structure, to produce the greatest glide slope (the ratio of the distance traveled to decrease in altitude) possible. To better understand the science behind aerodynamics, students will explore the aspects of flight through three lead-up investigations.

Details: The program is offered at BOTH the Shelbyville Library and Morristown Branch. Students (4th Grade through 9th grade) will be involved in real world research using rigorous and engaging science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) content. The EDC connects with current research being done at the Glenn Research Center. All materials will be provided and there is no cost to the studnets other than their time and interest. We only have space for 20 students at each location so register today.
