Keep it Plane
Teachers — modeling as students — engineer paper airplanes after making predictions based on their process/product.
Campbell, Cox, Gilly, Liles
The airplane is a very traditional bi-wing model that is readily found on the internet. It is more broad than the traditional airplane.
Our plane was formed by starting the folding method with a horizontal sheet of paper, whereas the opposing team appears to have begun folding from the vertical position.
Our airplane glided a good distance (~20 feet) before it came to rest on the ground. We made up for our speed with our time spent in the air.
Unlike our predictions, the airplane slowly came to a stop, rather than a sudden stop.
