Engineering Design Challenges: Let it Glide! (Morristown)

  • Velma Wortman Morristown Branch of the Shelby County Public Library 127 East Main Street Morristown, IN, 46161 United States (map)

We invite any scientifically minded students to join the challenge at the library's Morristown Branch! Reserve your spot on the team by calling or stopping by the library today! Free Event/RSVP Required

Overview: 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 thea spects of flight through three lead-up investigations.

Details: Students will be involved in real world research using rigorous and engaging science, technology, engineering, adn 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 students other than their time and interest. We only have space for 20 students so register today at the Morristown Library.

RSVP: Arlene Reynolds, Morristown Branch Department Head
