School Project | Walk along Glider

WOW It WORKS  introducing “Walk Along Glider ” to Anderson primary School , GAIA Club members .

Walk Along Glider | The basic theory of flight

Demonstrating the  4 basic forces at work – Gravity , Lift , Thrust and Drag to children . But what happens when the centre of Gravity or mass is offsetted ? Well a piece of paper with a 5 cent coin taped to the edge of the paper will not fall vertically downwards !!

Walk along Glider | How does it work ?

Not only does children get as chance to understand  how thrust is created through the board onto the walk along glider but they will learn about

  • how shifting of centre of gravity or mass affects flight
  • the use of ailerons of the glider
  • Stalling and nose-diving of glider

Children gets a chance to work in teams , show off their work and create their own wing designs

Walk along glider | Learning is fun

At the end of the walk along glider project , children

  • learn about the 4 basic  forces – gravity , lift , thrust and drag
  • learn about stalling and nose diving of glider
  • learn how to optimize flight of the glider via shifting the centre of gravity and the use of ailerons
  • having lots of fun
