Operation Airlift

Test your engineering skills!

Get Ready for Lift-Off!

You've been learning the necessary skills through experiences with Oobleck, circuits, motors, and buoyancy. Now see if you have what it takes to design and construct a payload that drive a high-altitude balloon!

On your team, you might be doing one of the following jobs:

  • Designing and building the payload
  • Documenting your team's progress through social media
  • Tracking how much money your team is earning and spending
  • Creating and delivering an exciting "sales pitch"
  • Managing other participants and making sure everything gets done!
