Dream, Grow, Soar: Paper Airplanes
Ken Blackburn's Paper Airplanes
Ken Blackburn's website shares what he knows about paper airplanes. He holds the Guinness record for time aloft for paper airplanes.
The most amazing thing about a paper airplane is that all you need to make one is a sheet of paperónothing more. You don't need scissors, glue, tape, or paper clips. A few folds, a couple of adjustments, and you have a superb paper flyer. The properties of paper give the airplane all the attributes it needs.

Paper Airplane Science
The purpose of this activity is for students to gather some baseline information, make one variable and test the results, make another variable and test the results, choose a paper plane design that they believe will fly the farthest and test the results, graph the longest and average distances flown for each of paper plane trails.
