Designing Super Paper Planes

Age group: Elementary School

Learn the basic science of air travel and test your engineering skills by creating a super paper plane.  The instructions, provided below as a resource, will provide design tips that may help your plane fly farther.  Once you've tested it in flight, you may want to choose to change the design to make it better.  The sky is the limit.  Presented by the UT Austin American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
