It has a been awhile since I have posted here but I notice many people are coming to my website from previous posts. Thank you. Lately I have been working on what I will hope to be one of the most fun and educational projects for the money, foam plate and straw gliders. Only tool needed is a scissors, materials; foam plates, plastic straws, masking tape, and clay. With some basic knowledge of aerodynamics students can build gliders that fly pretty well. This is an introductory article I had written: http://www.endlesslift.com/2012/06/foam-glider-experiments-design/ I have been also working with the LEGO Mindstorms, building projects from books.
