Axis of Rotation


Tumblewing Gliders
For Grades 6-12

Students will build a wing that flies on a shelf of air provided by their walking action to illustrate one of many ways lift and thrust can be provided to an airfoil. This lesson also gives background to Bernoulli’s Principle and shows how changes in design can affect performance.
