Aerodynamics - How airplanes fly, maneuver, and land - YouTube ‎[720p]‎.mp4


Pay close attention to the terms :

Lift 
Roll
Pitch
Thrust

You will be required to know these terms and others for a future quiz...

This is a fun activity, but not child's play.....  

Even MIT holds a paper airplane event!!


WE will start the construction on our paper airplanes, one for distance, one for air time.... take this seriously, use the internet to search for different designs, test and re-test using the Engineering Design Process.

3rd class of the week, we will go to the aux gym to find out who can go the farthest and who can remain in the air the longest. 

There will also be points for originality, design, and air-worthiness.

You will only use paper.....no glue, tape, paperclips, etc...... 

You will be limited to the paper I supply.  You may bring your own paper from home, with approval.

PLEASE PICK UP AFTER YOURSELVES -  ANY PLANES LEFT ON DESKS WILL BE DISCARDED.

ANY PAPER SCRAPS LEFT ON DESKS OR FLOORS WILL RESULT IN A "0" CLASS GRADE FOR WHOEVER SAT AT THAT DESK AND THOSE AROUND THEM.
