Maker Camp takes off for another day of fun.

Day 2 of Maker Camp continues with the theme of “makers in motion.” We have a couple airborne projects today for different maker skill levels. The first makercamp-280x200project is an Easy Balloon Blimp that costs about a dollar to build. For something a little more advanced, you can try the Folding Wing Glider which goes up like a rocket, deploys wings, and then glides gently to the ground. You can get the glider parts as a kit from the Maker Shed or you can cut the balsa wood parts with a hobby knife (remembering to be careful and get adult supervision).

Continuing with the airborne theme, we’ll also be talking DIY planes with the crew at Brooklyn Aerodrome. Tune in right here on Google+ at 11am PST/2pm EST and prepare for take-off!.
