Get ready to totally geek out on an awesome science project! Put fun first to make learning truly approachable and entertaining. Students build or make a tangible, lasting item - an object worthy of keeping on display or giving as a gift after the fun and educational process of creating it is over. An ornithopter is a mechanical aircraft that flies by flapping its wings. Build four models including a bird, bat, butterfly, and dragonfly. The wings work like propellers to generate lift and thrust, powered by a wind-up rubber band engine. Durable bamboo and plastic building system enables the models to be light enough to fly gracefully through the air like winged animals.
