Check out two new lesson plans on TryEngineering.org!

Designing Drones - This lesson focuses on helicopters and drones, how they fly, how they are used in different ways that help people and the environment. Teams of students explore helicopter flight; and design, build, and test their own simple rotor out of basic materials.

Take Flight This lesson explores flight and how the design of a glider will improve aerodynamic function. Teams of students discover the forces that impact flight and design, build, and test their own gliders out of simple materials.

TryEngineering.org. lessons encourage problem solving, critical thinking and team building skills. Each lesson includes step-by-step instructions, a list of low-cost materials, background information, and student worksheets. All lesson plans are aligned to national education standards including the Next Generation Science Standards, ITEEA Standards for Technological Literacy and Common Core Mathematics Standards where applicable.

Quickstart: we have resources for Students, Parents, Teachers, and Guidance Counselors
