Welcome to my DonorsChoose.org Giving Page. Please join me in supporting my middle schools students by making a donation of any size! Nothing inspires my 6th and 7th graders thinking and creativity quite like activities based learning projects. For the second straight year we have decided to explore the history of flight, the principles that govern flight dynamics, aeronautics and aerospace engineering. Last year’s culminating project was entitled Glider Design Challenge. The project was particularly fun because the task was to create a functional glider that could travel a minimum distance of 25 ft. using only balsa, paper and glue. The learning objectives were to apply many of the concepts we learned in STEM classes throughout the year including measurement, scale, formulation of hypothesis, testing, and engineering to solve the glider engineering challenge. Students were required to make a schematic diagram of their glider for an initial presentation to the rest of the class. After schematics were approved we transitioned to GOOGLE Sketch-Up to design gliders in 3-D using more formal measurements and calculations. Upon completing their schematic drawings we entered the fabrication stage of the project where ¼ scale models were made using card stock. Once the ¼ scale models were approved for final fabrication, based on structure and flight capability, each team was given their final fabrication materials to begin fabricating their full-scale models. Upon completion each team flight-tested their gliders outside by releasing them from a height of 20 feet to see how far each glider would travel. This year we plan to take it a step further by using Siemens Solid Edge software for design and a MakerBot 3D printer for fabrication, testing not only new materials but flight characteristics of certain design objects and elements as well as their stability and aerodynamic properties while in flight. Your donations will make our dreams a reality. This particular design project will be a first for our school and our district. Your donations will encourage my students interest in STEM and ultimately continuing educations and careers in STEM related fields. hide
