Thumbs down

I know you're gonna have to make the same kind of airplane and try to throw the airplane at the same strength but I am sorry about that part because I don't know how to do that. I can tell you a better science project to do though. It's about dogs Find out if their left pawed or right pawed. If you had a dog that knows the trick "shake", that would do the trick.



Sincerely,
Fire 9000

That would be a very good idea if you were a professional paper airplane maker!
The flaws in that are:
1) You MUST make the airplane the same EVERY time...
2) You have to have EVERY measurement of air pressure, humidity, wind, etc. EXACT on every throw...
3) VERY difficult to get a good grade on!

Thumbs down extremely hard project

I agree
the wind and stuff would have to be the exact same. you could do it in a really big warehouse or something.

Then the air and pressure would most likely be controlled.

Default dogs

I don't think the dog idea would be good because some dogs are trained to do both. And some will put their left/right paw out depending on what hand you put out.
