Jordan Elementary Students Design Paper Planes


We are working on designs for our paper airplanes. That standard paper airplane design, I knew
that design from when I was in third grade so I was like let’s juice it up a little. Let’s see if we can come up with our own designs
that can work. So the point today and really the project
in general is for them to get used to the re-testing, designing and re-designing phase
in science. It’s actually a great opportunity to like
test our hypothesis, change and it’s kind of like learning about the process of trial
and error. In science if you fail at something you’re
not supposed to quit. You’re supposed to figure out what went wrong
and then make adjustments and then re-test it and see if it works. We learned about the four main forces that
act on an airplane. If you don’t have enough lift it will just
plunge right down. Gravity and drag which also affect the plane
greatly. The segment of like changing it and hoping
it goes like the sensation I get I just love it. It’s so much fun.
