Project 3X5 by John Anderson, is a unique approach to educational aerodynamics-using simple 3"X5" index cards to create interesting, good flying paper gliders.

AMA Day Camp is a resource for our education outreach volunteers, as well as any model aviation educator or club that is seeking guidance. Here you will find ideas, activities, and suggestions on how to deliver and promote our education outreach program at home, in the classroom, or out on the flying field!

Here you will find activities that will help you teach the basic science concepts of flight to your students!

We know you will find the information here to be very useful as you prepare your presentation for a student classroom or children in a community group.

This activity, created specially for classroom use, teaches how the forces thrust and drag affect an object moving through the air. Students will construct a paper rocket using the template provided and use it to conduct an experiment.

This activity, created specially for classroom use, teaches how the force of lift affects an object moving through the air. Students will construct an indoor paper box kite using the template provided and use it to conduct an experiment.

This activity, created specially for classroom use, teaches how the force of weight affects an object moving through the air. Students will construct a small parachute using the template provided and use it to conduct an experiment.

This group project uses model aviation as a tool to inspire creativity and demonstrate the processes by which ideas become reality. It teaches the fundamentals of aerodynamics, aircraft design, construction and basic RC power/control systems. You will need the assistance of someone who is familiar with building model aircraft.

Check out how to build and fly an FPG-9 foam glider! Our instructions make it quick and simple to make from cheap materials you probably have at home.
