Logics Academy Presents: Balsa Glider


Sat Dec 21, 2019
2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
120 mins

Wait until you see these things fly! Students will investigate the four forces of flight and test how to manipulate these forces using balsa gliders. These light weight flying machines need to be constructed in such a way as to balance the forces. Once constructed, students will be challenged to use wing flaps to completed certain challenges with their gliders, using the knowledge they gained from the lesson. These challenges range from a barrel roll to a full loop!

This 2 hour lesson will introduce forces of flight (thrust, drag, lift, gravity) and includes a hands on building activity.
Participants get to keep their Balsa Gliders!
