Paper Aeroplanes and Scientific Method

This is the last week of term 3 and in Year 7 Science we are doing another exciting science project with Mr Ardito’s class in New York. This project is to design and test the best paper aeroplane – but what defines ‘best’? We decided that, for this project, the best paper aeroplane is the one that travels the greatest distance in the air. Each group of three students tested one aspect of the plane – such as wing-shape, nose angle, length or style of plane. Then each plane was flown five times and the data was collected to obtain the average flight distance. You can view our videos here:
