Learn how to build this model airplane.
Electric Cargo Plane Workshop
15 June 2014
Instructor: Paul Wiedorn.
Free to K-12 educators. You must register in advance.
This workshop will introduce 6-12 grade educators to the concept and utility of a tethered flight engineering challenge. The instructors, using curriculum that has been mapped to national standards, will help participants build an airplane with maximum dimensions of 3' in length, width, and height that can carry the maximum amount of cargo as it flies around a power pole that supplies electricity and mechanical support via a tether.
At the conclusion of this workshop, educators will have the necessary tools to help students understand how engineers combine science, math, research and experimentation to build a successful cargo plane.
Students test their airplanes.
