Fling Flyer Design Challenge
ABOUT THIS BADGE
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.
When you’ve earned this badge, you'll have learned about the forces that affect flight as you design, build, and test a Fling Flyer. You'll know how to design an investigation—and fine-tune your design after testing it, just like engineers.
Badge Booklets in our Shop
Our Badge Booklets were created specifically for the busy Troop Leader.
Each booklet covers all step requirements for the badge in a fun and engaging way. You'll have access to a supply list and Leaders Guide that accompany each booklet and can expand the learning experience.
