This quarter in our Engineering Design class for 7th and 8th grade, students are designing a balsa wood airplane.Students have been working with a team to research, design, construct, test, revise and fly a balsa airplane. At the end of the project, students are hosting a Project Showcase event after school on May 23 at 6 PM. Parents and caregivers are invited to come and interact with the students and see launches of their collaboratively designed airplanes.

Some examples of their work will include:

  • Task management

  • Scale drawing

  • Balsa construction

  • Photography and documentation

  • Research, Design, and Revision
