Unit Overview

India and Jacob—a fictional, world-traveling brother and sister duo—guide kids through the engineering activities. In this unit, kids are introduced to the field of aeronautical engineering as they design a variety of flying technologies.  After experimenting with vertical wind tunnels, drop-copters, and spinning discs, kids are asked to design model flying technologies to help take aerial photos of the biggest desert on Earth: The Empty Quarter. 

The On-the-Go Kit includes everything one student needs to complete the challenge and practice thinking like an engineer. 


The Virtual Learning Edition provides the instruction and support teachers need to make the engineering adventure engaging and motivating for students. The unit’s three-part structure makes virtual teaching and learning flexible and easy to navigate.  

  1. Instructional planningGet ready to teach
  2. Launch the UnitExplore virtual learning best practices, set expectations, introduce the unit, prepare materials and explore the unit 
  3. AdventureComplete exciting engineering adventures with virtual challenges that are enhanced with hands-on learning by students with individual On-the-Go Materials Kits
