A few weeks back we did a science/engineering activity where we created paper aeroplanes and then thought about how we could improve their design to fly further.
To take this a step further I would like you to visit this website (which is the greatest paper aeroplane website ever created!)
I would like you to choose two designs and create and test these.
Then some questions for you to think about:
Which flies further and why? Does one fly faster than the other, why do you think this is? What is the force pulling the aircraft towards the ground?
Email me anything you discover at email@example.com
