Paper planes

To support our engineering space, we ha a workshop today to explore measuring the distance that our paper planes go. Things did not go to plan! We had to discuss variables – what alters the distance of our paper plane distances?

We came up with 3:
* size
* design
* wind / air

We had lots of struggles with the wind! We wondered, what would be the perfect weather conditions to fly a paper plane? After looking at the weather app, we found out that the temperature was 13.5 degrees, it forecasted rain and the wind was traveling at 24km from the west.
