Together with our Basics of Flight Learning Centre Lesson and Workbook the Sigma Rockets Basics of Flight Glider provides the educator with the tools needed to teach flight. The lesson starts out with an introduction to early aviators and goes into the properties of air followed up by how an airplane flies.
Our workbook takes the student through hands-on experiments involving modifications of the glider. The student learns how to change the glider's centre of gravity in order to have the glider fly successfully. Physical changes to the glider through sanding allows the student to see first hand the effects of lift on an aircraft. Reductions in drag on the glider gives the student a hands-on experience in improving efficiency. Ailerons added to the glider give it the ability to turn in a desired direction.
Each glider comes with the parts labeled in both English and French.
Included in the bulk pack are:
