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

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

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.
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.
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!
