This design challenge takes you to the skies and back down to Earth! Investigate the forces of flight and design a Fling Flyer prototype to test. Think like an engineer as you brainstorm and create a race car. Try your hand on the racetrack and see if you can improve your design and increase your speed!

Note: Participants will receive the Fling Flyer and Paddle Boat Mechanical Engineer Badges. Adult chaperones will be required

This program will spark interest in the following career paths: mechanical engineer, mechanic,  aeronautic engineer

Outcomes: D4, D5, T5

GSHOM’s goal is to offer quality programs to as many girls as possible. At least two adults must accompany every troop/group to an event. In order to serve as many girls as possible, and make sure there is plenty of space to provide the program, troops are asked to keep their adult-to-girl ratio to the ratio specified in Volunteer Essentials for Events/Programs. Please click here for the link to Safety Activity Checkpoints and refer to page 5.

Troops/groups that register more adults than listed in the ratio listed above may be asked to limit the number of adults to the correct ratio.
