Paper Airplanes Aflight!
 
6th grader interested in doing a science fair project comparing paper airplane designs. Any suggestions?

well
 
you could compare the way the planes fly like which ones fly straight.

Or which one flies the farthest, that's what i'm doing :D (PSP, Hellz Ya)

i got one
 
YOu could find all of these different types of paper airplanes on the internet. (google recomended) make a starting point and throw the aiplanes and measure. the only problem is that you have to make sure that they're thrown the exact same way every time.
OR
you could build a balsa wood airplane. you could buy a little kit at a store. every time you could like adjust the angle or something. or move a piece forward or backwards or something like that.
OR
You could buy a foam plane and a bbalsa and make a basic paper one and compare them to each other. like the distance they fly, how they sterr, and stuff like that. Hope it helps!
