Here’s an interesting education program using Squirrels. Squirrel is simple enough that it was just one of three different projects within the program. They started with some experiments and a paper plane, moved onto a walkalong glider and then finally a Squirrel.
Thank you for sending the 3 free squirrels. I took them to India and
it flew beautifully!
Attaching video of pure fun.
I was invited to a breakfast-model plane yesterday morning. There were a few adults and a few kids. Just enough to make it easy to get some planes flying.
We flew some balsa and tissue Squirrels as well as a few prototype Foam Squirrels.
With this group of children I decided to try flying only rather than a build and fly session. I think this might be a great way of starting younger children.
They get a sense of what it is and may want to make them in the future.
