- Students will engage in and design an aerial glider from a list of materials that will be provided for them. An aerial glider is a mobile vehicle that is suspended in air for a given amount of time, and it travels a targeted distance.This vehicle will demonstrate animal adaptations and how their wings are beneficial for successful flight of that creature in their biomes. Knowledge of these concepts will be crucial for industry related fields such as mechanical, electrical and additive manufacturing engineering in both the public and military sectors. Students will learn the hard and soft skills necessary to be globally competitive citizens and perform at the highest standard in various careers. This lesson should be taught at the conclusion of the ecosystems unit as students will need prior knowledge of animal adaptations and how they must adjust to various environments in order to survive.
