Ladybug Glider

Did you know that insects are some of the best flying creatures in the world? The wings of insects allow them to fly forwards, backwards and sideways, hover in the air, or glide on the wind. In this activity, you can build a ladybug-shaped glider and experiment with how the weight of the glider affects how well it flies.
