Here’s how to make the coolest, most aerodynamic paper airplain ever! Make a video of yourself making this airplane or one of your own design and YOU COULD WIN TOO!

Here are some ideas you can include in your entry (and be thinking about as you plan your plane!)

Trajectory – the angle/direction used when the kid propelled the airplane toward the target
Force – how hard the kids threw the plane
Shape – how elements of the plane helped it/hindered it from flying well

1. What is this most aerodynamic shape?
2. Can you get your airplane to fly where you want it to go?
3. What do you have to change to get it to go where you want it to go?


You can try different designs at home and then take a video of your best one! Just send the video of you making and flying your paper airplane. If you can tell us why it is aerodynamicly great, so much the better. Then load you video onto iTwixie by clicking here to upload your movie!

We’ll start awarding prizes next week, Thursday, May 3!
