Foldable Flyers: Making the Ultimate Paper Airplane

Saturday, April 10, 2021

Did you know that paper airplanes were around for decades before the first motor-powered flight in 1903?  Early engineers actually tested their plane designs with paper prototypes.  In this hands-on, high-flying session, earn your wings with an aerospace engineer and pilot who will teach you how to use the four principles of aerodynamics to create a paper airplane that soars.  The world record for a paper airplane flight is 69.14 meters in distance — about the length of three school gymnasiums!  How far will your plane go?
Preparation: paper, paper clips, tape.
Expert: Erin Richardson, from the University of Toronto’s aerospace engineering program.
