Prototyping Cargo Planes!
Grade 6 innovation classes applied their knowledge of flight and their design process by creating their own cargo planes! Students were enthusiastically involved in prototyping and testing their designs while answering the questions:
Can you design a craft that can fly 10 feet and carry coins as cargo?
How many coins can your airplane support and still fly at least 10 feet?
Innovation involves a different way of looking at and solving problems. This significantly enhances the educational process because it requires students to use high-level thinking in order to solve complex problems.
