Want to make your paper planes fly further for longer?
This simple but elegant solution could be the answer.
Forms the basis of a great classroom or home activity involving experimentation, testing and design challenges.
How far forward does the booster need to be for the balance to be right?
Would a shorter straw be better or worse?
Is it better to have a glider or dart-like plane?
How will you secure your booster?
Would you need a propeller with larger or smaller blades?
Should the propeller be used to pull or push the plane?
Great fun and very competitive!
