MakerSpace activity: Hoop Gliders

This¬†activity was cheap, quick and easy, and combined fun with science – all good things in my opinion. I got the idea here. All we needed was cardboard, sticky-tape and straws. I made a prototype using regular paper but it wasn’t stiff enough. After making the hoop gliders we took the kids outside and had a competition to see whose could fly the furthest. It was surprising how far they could travel.
