I’m coaching aerodynamics. I know the kids have 5 min to make 2 planes. My question is, if I have two kids as a team, can I have each of them make 1 plane in the 5 min, and use the plane from each kid as distance and time plane, respectively? Thanks!
Teams will design, construct, and fly at least two paper airplanes. Two initial flights will be measured for distance. Two final flights will be measured for flight time.
One paper airplane should be designed to fly as far as possible. The other paper airplane should be designed to stay in the air as long as possible.
We do encourage them to work as a team to decide their strategy, having used scientific process to determine the optimal designs.
