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.
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.
