Below you will find 4 different designs of common paper airplanes. The goal of this experiment is to test which design is the best for long-distance flight.
A few of the designs have some added features that can be added to all planes such as square folded noses and wing spoilers. Feel free to mix in those features as you wish!
After you fold all 4 planes, take them to a long clear hallway and test out throwing each one.
Make sure to keep track of each plane’s distance so that you can design which design is best for a long-distance flight.
