Items Needed: I would like to get a wing tester for my 7th grade Introduction to Technology class.

The students go through an aerospace unit where they learn about airfoils and how they create lift.

The students make their own airfoils out of styrofoam.

The only way to test them right now is tie them to a fan and see if they get lift.

I would really be nice if the students could use a wing tester to give them a digital readout of how much lift their wing is getting.

This would help students get a better idea as to how the different shapes of an airfoil affect the lift.

  • PHOTOS: 27 tons of documents destroyed during BBB Shredfest 2016

    The free BBB Shredfest event Saturday offered anyone with documents containing personal information to shred up to three bags. Destroying documents is one way to protect one's identity and thwart fraudsters.

    More than 1,600 cars stopped by two Madison locations from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, and 27 tons of documents were shredded, a Better Business Bureau representative said. The sites were at SVA Certified Public Accountants, 1221 John Q Hammons Dr. and Warner Park, 2930 N. Sherman Ave.
