in flight . . . and out

January 24, 2012


After one of my classes had finished their art exam, I told them that, as promised, we could take their last works out for “test runs.” They have just completed a glider design and construction project, so today we took them out to the runway to see if they would fly. Unfortunately, the first flight of one of the gliders involved a rather destructive crash. Surveying the damage, I explained that I had to take photos so we could submit proper insurance claims . . .

    Sounds like a great project: math, physics and fun! Hope the temps have moderated a bit there.
