Work like an engineer to create a Fling Flyer, an airplane you'll make, and explore what keeps it and other things, such as birds, planes, and space ships, in the air.
1. Learn about forces that affect flight
2. Design and build a Fling Flyer
3. Test your Fling Flyer
4. Analyze and share your results
5. Brainstorm ways to improve your design
When I’ve earned this badge, I will have learned about the forces that affect flight as I design, build, and test a Fling Flyer. I will know how to design an investigation—and fine-tune my design after testing it, just like engineers.
Girl Scout badges, awards, and other insignia that are earned for the accomplishment of skill building activities or any set requirements should be presented, worn, or displayed only after Girl Scouts have completed the requirements outlined in the appropriate program.
