Crash Test Kids: Stealth Learning at Its Best
Marshall, Kirk
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v70 n8 p6-8 May-Jun 2011
Building a human-powered flying craft can be much more complicated than one would first imagine. There are no "premade" plans available for this type of craft. In addition, the crafts needed to be built with some "style," or in other words, they should represent something other than a flying machine. The concept of launching a human-powered craft off a 30-foot pier has never been perfected. In this article, the author describes how students at one Pennsylvania high school designed and constructed a human-powered glider for a national contest.
