Better By Design

Students utilize the scientific method to determine the effect of control surfaces on a paper glider. They will construct a paper airplane/glider and test its performance to determine the base characteristics of the plane. They will then change one of the control surfaces and compare the results to their base glider in order to determine the cause and effect relationship of the control surfaces.
