Folded Flight: The Educational Power of Paper Airplanes

Presented by: The Institute of Flight (Mukilteo, WA)

Beyond the traditional wedge-shaped paper airplane that we’ve all enjoyed is a world of dramatic shapes and surprising performance, a world of excellent paper airplanes.  This exhibit will provide instructions on how to construct up to five different designs, which all provide insights into different aspects of aviation and the science of flight.  Participants can experiment with the four forces of flight, control surfaces, and other fundamentals, while enjoying the fun and energy that comes with paper airplanes that work.
