Experimenting with Paper Air Planes

Ever since he could fold a piece of paper into an airplane, he has been hooked.

Paper airplanes of all sorts have been designed, constructed, and flown in and outside of our home.

Naturally, when asked to pick a science fair project, he thought of paper air planes.  Several questions were thought of to test, but he choose testing the rigidity of paper.  He wanted to know which paper would result in a longer flight time for his paper air planes. 

With some help from his science teacher, he designed an experiment, conducted it, and reported his results to the entire science co-op. 

Though he was nervous speaking in front of so many people, he did a great job!  And, I'm not just saying that because I am his mom (OK, maybe I am).  However, on all his evaluations, he scored high marks!
