Let’s build some paper airplanes. Check out this Fold and Fly website for folding directions. What design stays aloft the longest, which is the fastest, or which one flies the longest distance? Is one design more capable of aerobatic feats? What happens if the wings are symmetrical (have to get those math terms in)? Make a variety of planes and run some experiments. Measure the distance they fly or the time how long they stay aloft. Make charts or a bar graph for each to the design types.
