WKS514: Father's Day: Build and Fly a Folding-Wing Glider
Class Number 638-22001

Build and fly a folding-wing glider!

With wings folded back, these gliders rocket into the air using a hand-held rubber band catapult. At the apogee, the wings pop out for a gentle glide down. This glider has a fun history which you can become a part of as you cut the parts on the laser cutter, customize the wing and build the glider from scratch. Once done, we'll head down to a local field for some high flying fun. All parts are included in the fee and you'll go home with a neat glider to be used many more times!

Teams of two, please email with the names of your team members. Only one person needs to sign up.
