Meet MAKE author and kit designer Rick Schertle along with Keith Violette as they share the history behind some wildly popular Maker Shed kits like the Compressed Air Rocket (MAKE 15) and Folding-Wing Glider (MAKE: 31). Rick and Keith are working on a new article and kit based on both of these: the Air Rocket Glider. Along with talking about the project, we'll get outside and demo it as well!
