Using Google Sketch Up to Design a Wing for a Glider

This lesson allows students design a wing for a standard glider and use Google Sketch Up to draw a 3D model of their glider. Students will learn to read a basic part drawing and gain a basic understanding of how to draw using Google Sketch Up, and use a multi-view part drawing of a basic glider and their design ideas for a wing to generate a Google Sketch Up 3D model.
