Year 5 STEM Paper Planes

Year 5 Paper Planes 

This project explores how design adaptations to an aeroplane can affect how far it flies and its ability to carry weight. Using computer-aided design and flight tests, children will explore and develop an aeroplane wing design, trying out a range of materials and modifications, before presenting their final model to a team from REECE Engineering.


Week 1

During this lesson the children found out lots of information about aeroplanes and how they fly.  They then used the sheets given to plan how they would make a paper plane.
