Remember high school science class, when you had to build a device capable of protecting an egg when you dropped the thing from a window? Flugtag is the same idea, except the egg is replaced by a person in a homemade aircraft that (fingers crossed) flies when launched from a 30-foot platform on the Potomac River. Thirty teams from along the East Coast will bring their goofy vehicles to National Harbor for the competition, which begins at 2 p.m. Shuttle service is available from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro station.
