Way back in 1956 we had a model aircraft club at school, (Craft and Design period).

We built some of the models in the classroom and flew them at a sports recreation field, (about a mile away, long walk from school).

They were mainly gliders, rubber power, and control line, (U control in the US).

That's me on the left in the picture below with an own design flying wing control line model.

All schools should have periods where the kids can design, make, and try out 'models' etc. Actual 'hands on manufacturing' to me, is just as important as learning to use a computer for youngsters.
