Aeronautic Engineers

I taught the girls to build paper airplanes and we had a competition to see whose plane could fly the furthest. The design for the planes is all about balance and centering the mass of the plane.  I gave the girls a template for a plane design that has been proven to fly well.    I made a plane that was measured carefully and folded very precisely so it was balanced.  My plane would go all the way across the parking lot.  The girls were very eager to try mine so I offered it as a prize to the girl who won the competition.  Lizzie Coleman’s plane went the distance so she won my plane.
