Mobile Makerspace – Albany Fun in the Park

August 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hoop gliders: Throwing a basic straw does not travel very far. However, when you add paper hoops, the straw glides through the air. That’s because the hoops behave as wings. Wings are seen on all flying creatures like insects and birds, they’re also on airplanes! But not all wings are the same form or size. Different wings might be more suitable for different types of flight. During this makerspace project, we will turn into engineers and try adjusting the wings of our glider. How does it fly with several wings? Additionally, the simplicity and accessibility of this activity make it suitable for learners of various ages and skill levels.

This event will be held at Montieth Park in Albany.
