CreateKit Flight Mission Kit

Unit:  Ea
Send budding aerospace engineers on a missing to build and test a flying device to discover flight concepts!

Challenge students to work together as they brainstorm concepts, sketch designs, and build their own flying devices. They can create devices such as a free-falling parachute that relies on gravity, a paper airplane to display the benefits of two wings, or a rocket that's propelled by air. Add a challenge by creating more parameters such as making a device that flies the farthest, try landing it in the center of a target mat, or perform a trick like a flip in the air. Students use the Engineering Design Process to work through any issues they may encounter to improve their flying devices. Set includes lesson direction and all materials needed to get the unit going in no time. Ideal for up to 24 students working in groups of 6. Recommended for Middle School and up.

The included lesson direction details setup instructions, activities by grade level, learning objectives, and teaching suggestions to expand lessons.
