Check out my paper plane launchers! They are specially designed so you can see the mechanism, feel the vibrations and hear the motors.

In Fabulous Flyers, everyone is given a basic paper plane to test. Then we explore different designs, adjust the launch angle or the speed of launch. Everyone has the opportunity for multiple launches without the stress-point of throwing the plane themselves. 

 

Pupils learn why we can only change one variable at a time to ensure a fair test. This workshop is based on the test, modify, test idea and is guaranteed to be fun while learning.
