Model Airplane
Design and make a model airplane in order to learn about the mechanism of flight. Although challenging and sometimes disappointing, it is a good start for those who love to fly. Plenty of help is available and you may even purchase a kit to speedup your project.
Material and instructions:
By doing this project you will experience the art and techniques of making models. most model airplanes are made of balsa wood.  For the experiments of this project, you may purchase a model airplane and modify the design or construct your own model. You can study the effects of wing span, wing surface area and wing position on the distance an airplane can fly or glide.
