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.
1. Learn about forces that affect flight
2. Design and build a Fling Flyer
3. Test your Fling Flyer
4. Analyze and share your results
5. 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.
