CELEBRATING SCIENCE - WEEK 1

CARGO AIRPLANE Challenge

Make a ‘paper’ airplane that can carry cargo and glide 10 feet. The cargo will be coins. Start small with one coin and build up! See how many coins your creation can carry! Let’s see who can fly the most money! You can use paper, cardboard or anything else you can find in your house to build your airplane. Most importantly, have fun!

Level A:

Make a glider out of any material you want. See how far it can go.  Measure the distance in inches. 

Level B:

Add coins one by one and see how much weight your plane can carry and still glide 10 feet.. At the end, count up the coins and see how much money your plane was able to transport!
