Experimenting with Paper Airplanes

Young scholars explore the concept of flight.  In this flight lesson plan, students make paper airplanes with different designs.  Young scholars change the angle of launch and thrust and record the distances and time spent in air for each flight.  Students add weight to the planes to see how it affects the flight.  Young scholars determine the Reynolds number of their planes.
