Aspiring aeronautical engineers demonstrate different forces as they construct and test paper airplanes. This lesson plan links you to a website that models the most effective paper airplane design, an animation describing the forces affecting flight, and an interactive that allows learners to design and test the lift of a wing. Ideas are given for cross-curricular extensions involving the history of flight.
