Do you find flying things fascinating? Are you amazed by airplanes, drones, and helicopters? Do you want to know how they work and what makes them fly? With help from Kerbal Space Program, flight science is made easy for you! Not only it is easy, but it is also hilarious! In this workshop, you will design and build your own aircraft, and then test fly it to see how well it works!

Objectives:

  1. Describe the ways in which forces may change the motion of an aircraft (thrust, lift, drag, weight).
  2. Describe how lift is produced in terms of action-reaction force pairs.
  3. Show understanding that the weight of an airplane may be taken as acting at a single point known as its centre of gravity.
  4. Explain the effects of friction (air resistance) to the motion of an aircraft.
  5. Design, build and safely land an aircraft.
  6. Complete an aircraft design challenge (optional).
