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.
