Brownie - Mechanical Engineering: Fling Flyer
Work like an engineer to create a Fling Flyer, an airplane you'll make, and explore what keeps it and other things, such as birds, planes, and space ships, in the air.
Learn about forces that affect flight
Design and build a Fling Flyer
Test your Fling Flyer
Analyze and share your results
Brainstorm ways to improve your design
When you’ve earned this badge, you'll have learned about the forces that affect flight as you design, build, and test a Fling Flyer. You'll know how to design an investigation—and fine-tune your design after testing it, just like engineers.
