The craft stick glider is a simple mini project found in the Explore Aerospace module that allows students to easily test and compare certain variables and how they relate to glider flight. Students take the information gathered and apply it to larger gliders they design and build themselves. Watch the video below for a quick and easy run-down on this simple classroom activity!
