Plane Crazy


This project involves creating a series of plane prototypes using 3D modelling and practical models.

The Goal

You are to produce a plane / rocket that will be assessed on the following criteria:

  • Flight distance
  • Flight time
  • Height off of ground
  • Maximum speed

What to hand in

  • You development journal / workbook
  • A list of success criteria (what will be considered a successful plane / rocket)
  • Evidence of your planning
  • Sketches and 3D models of plane / rocket designs
  • Evidence of evaluating designs
  • Physical prototypes / concepts (this will include photos)
  • Reflections on each design, this will include results from testing, records of
  • Performance against the goal criteria above

Tasks / Activities

  1. Introduction (Presentation)
  2. Sketch rocket / plane ideas
  3. Orthographic drawing of concept (include dimensions)
