EMS GT students kicked off a new project Monday after receiving a challenge from Johnson Space Center. Students were asked to design a way to make a shoe box fly...or at least glide. Using any shoe box as the fuselage, students will design a glider using their knowledge of how the forces of flight interact to generate lift. Test flights will determine the glide slope ratio and students will have an opportunity to modify their design based on their results. Once they have maximized their design for longest sustained flight, they will prepare a presentation to deliver to the NASA representative describing how and why they chose their design, their findings through the test flight process, modifications they made, and data collected. Students report back to NASA on November 23.
