BASIC CHUCK GLIDER WORKSHOP
Gliders are graceful non-powered planes that take off in the air with a simple thrust. This workshop allows beginners of a young age to gain interest in aviation through building their first mini chuck glider. The participants will each be handed with a plane kit with set dimensions. Basic principles of flight theory will be infused during the course. Once the glider is built, participants will be taught proper throwing techniques and test flight the gliders.
Room with tables and chairs for building, Field or Open space for testing of gliders.
6 to 8 years old
English | Mandarin available
**Each participant will take home one glider**
Participants will be building the glider from scratch, sanding the various parts and assembling them together. They will then learn how to trim the plane for flight performance.
Participants of this workshop will learn physics concepts like kinetic energy, four forces of flight, Newton's law of motions, flight trajectory, center of gravity.
