Submitted by Mr. Kevin Poeckes
Over the past two weeks the 7th graders have been working on a design and engineering unit with gliders during science class with Mr. Kevin Poeckes. The seventh graders were assigned a split into pairs that needed to work together to design and build an original balsa wood and Styrofoam glider. Teams had to improve their gliders through trial and error to produce the glider that could fly the greatest distance. Students gathered data and created graphs to demonstrate their understanding of the principles of flight.
All of the students competed in a series...
