"Participants study the principles of flight and design in order to fabricate a glider that stays in flight for the greatest elapsed time. The glider must be designed to be launched from a catapult that is provided onsite. The design process is documented in a portfolio that is submitted for evaluation."

For the Connecticut State Conference, this competition entails constructing a glider prior to the conference and having three official flight times recorded on-site. There is no semifinalist build event. Only individuals may participate in this event.

Items required for submission:


Printed portfolio

Separate copy of LEAP Report
