Creating Galactic Gliders at Gaines Academy of Emerging Technologies

The students in the STEAM Design Challenges classes at Samuel Gaines Academy of Emerging Technologies (SGAET) just completed their first Design Challenge: Galactic Gliders. Students worked in teams to design a unique hoop glider that would satisfy their client, Mrs. Ima Sorin’s, needs. Students had the chance to design, build, test, redesign and retest prototypes of gliders and then create and present different marketing projects in order to promote their product. The students recorded their data and knowledge learned in their Interactive STEM Notebooks and in their online Canvas course.
