FPG-9 Foam Plate Glider

AeroLab lessons feature simple foam and balsa aircraft as tools to teach the concepts of force and motion, potential/kinetic energy and centripetal force. The activities allow students to practice important math skills to determine average speed and distance flown. All labs are aligned with middle school physical science and math standards and are "S.T.E.M. Compliant." The labs feature conceptual activities in the physical sciences to provide opportunities for students to make predictions, collect data, graph results and draw conclusions, as well as participate in lessons designed for directed and guided inquiry.
