Sceince for kids, sub 1 oz R/C planes

Take a look at E Pilots sub 1 oz model.
If you went to school and your teacher showed you that and said, right, now we are going to design and make one of these and also fly it, what would you say?

All of the parts are cheap to buy. Its very educational: art, maths, materials science, electrics, structures, aerodynamics and at the end they could fly them in the school gym.
Draw the parts on CAD, write a spread sheet to track the costs and calculate wing loading?

I have found the best way to learn something is to do so actively, it all makes much more sense and has a purpose about it.
