Foldable Flyers: Making the Ultimate Paper Airplane
Did you know that paper airplanes were around for decades before the first motor-powered flight in 1903? Early engineers actually tested out their plane designs with paper prototypes! In this hands-on, high-flying session, earn your wings with an engineer who will teach you how to use the four principles of aerodynamics to create a paper airplane that soars. The world record for a paper airplane flight is 69.14 meters in distance -- about the length of three school gymnasiums. How far will your plane go?
Materials: paper, paper clips, tape.
Expert: Erin Richardson, from the University of Toronto's Engineering Program.
