Student Fly-Off

Each year, our partners and sponsors invite student teams to our annual Fly-Off to see which team designed the airplane that will most successfully play this year's game.

Student teams are scored in two categories:

  • The visual display provides an opportunity for teams to show design decisions that they made as they constructed and tested their airplane. It also reinforces the importance of sketching, documenting, and analyzing test data. Visual displays are submitted on the day of the fly-off.
  • The airplane performance is an opportunity for students to demonstrate proof of concept by flying their aircraft. Then, teams must successfully carry out this year's specific game.

Plus, play the Level-Up challenges to earn in-game advantages for your team!

And, don't forget to show your team spirit and compete for the Spirit Award!

At the end of the day, our sponsors and partners hold an awards ceremony to recognize the teams with the highest total scores.
