Paper Stomp Rockets. I run a free summertime activity program for kids as part of my job in the city where I live.
So I've got a lot of fun little projects up my sleeves, and I'm always on the lookout for more. One of the more popular summertime activities in my repertoire is homemade stomp rockets. Paper Stomp Jets. Aerospace Quality Management: UPS Solutions. Paper Rocket Aerodynamics. Make paper rockets you can launch by blowing through a straw and experiment to find out how changing the design can change how the rockets fly with this family STEM activity.
Making a paper rocket that you can launch by blowing through a straw is an easy hands-on activity sure to engage paper airplane folders and rocket enthusiasts alike. You can easily turn this paper-based pastime into a STEM activity by exploring the design of the paper rocket. What challenges does a straw-blown paper rocket have as it flies through the air? How can modifications to the design of the rocket help stabilize the rocket or help it fly farther?
Flying Paper Rocket in 9 easy steps. Member: OrigamiAirEnforcer. How To Make The UltraDagger Paper Airplane. Very fast, long range and stable, the UltraDagger is a very small but capable dart paper airplane developed from the older and larger HyperDagger.
The UltraDagger was developed as an interceptor variant of the HyperDagger with very high wing loading in an effort to improve stability and airframe rigidity further. The new design was conceived before a physical prototype was made, so as a result, the first UltraDagger was actually made from a HyperDagger I rebuilt and converted for testing. Despite the airframe being fairly old and somewhat worn, the new design was shown to be very promising. I continued testing with new built prototypes and after these upheld the previous showing of capability in testing, I decided the design was worthy of publication.

W5D4. Get a Lift! In this lesson, adapted from Smithsonian Education and TeachEngineering.com, you’ll introduce your students to the four forces of flight — drag, lift, thrust, and weight — through a variety of fun flight experiments.
Students will “fly” for short periods and then evaluate factors that might either increase or decrease their “flight” duration.
KELVIN.com Nose Hook Propeller, 6 in. Dia. Rubber Band Helicopters. The rubberband-powered helicopter is a favorite of my students because of the ease of construction and the exciting end product.

Propeller-Powered Zipline Racers. W5D2. Oakland Discovery Center: Tissue Paper Hot Air Balloon. Perhaps you've seen hot air balloons for sale as science demonstrations/experiments that you fill up with hot air from a hair dryer and let float to the top of the room.
This product can be easily recreated on a smaller scale with tissue paper. This project is a great way to demonstrate and learn about gases and density. You'll need: 5-6 sheets of tissue paper, a strip of paper, a glue stick, a marker, scissors, and a hair dryer. The first step is to layer 5-6 sheets of tissue paper and fold them in half lengthwise. Oakland Discovery Center. Perhaps you've seen hot air balloons for sale as science demonstrations/experiments that you fill up with hot air from a hair dryer and let float to the top of the room.

Flying an already-made glider is the best way to begin. This video shows how (it's the same as the one embedded at above). If the YouTube video is blocked at your school, try this 16MB MPEG file. This text only page explains in detail what is going on in the video. Alternately, here is a print-friendly, illustrated guide to flying, as a PDF document. Teaching a group to fly?
Origami Flying Disc: Makezine. W5D1. AIRPLANE INTRO. The list of materials is here .
The pattern for building the wings, stabilizer and tail is here. Seeing one of these planes soar gracefully overhead re-defines your perception of the three-dimentional space above. It even re-defines us: we are creatures living at the bottom of an ocean of air. All my 6th grade students-- over 250 of them every year when I was teaching-- made this project from scratch.
Thin strips of balsa wood were challenging to work with, but when the kids put their finished creations to flight there are no words to describe the joy. Hovercraft.

Building Tetrahedral Kites. Summary Working in teams of four, students build tetrahedral kites following specific instructions and using specific materials. They use the basic processes of manufacturing systems – cutting, shaping, forming, conditioning, assembling, joining, finishing, and quality control – to manufacture complete tetrahedral kites within a given time frame.
Project evaluation takes into account team efficiency and the quality of the finished product. Engineering Connection From kite racing to hang-gliders, kites have come a long way in the past 2000 years. Educational Standards Each TeachEngineering lesson or activity is correlated to one or more K-12 science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) educational standards. All 100,000+ K-12 STEM standards covered in TeachEngineering are collected, maintained and packaged by the Achievement Standard Network (ASN), a project of JES & Co.

Summary Students use the scientific method to determine the effect of control surfaces on a paper glider. They construct paper airplanes (model gliders) and test their performance to determine the base characteristics of the planes. Then they change one of the control surfaces and compare the results to their base glider in order to determine the cause and effect relationship of the control surfaces. Engineering Connection Engineers use the scientific method when testing their design models, changing one variable at a time and comparing it to the original configuration. Educational Standards.
