Plane making competition for #scienceweek15

It’s time to get designing!

There’ll be lots of science related activities throughout the school next week as we celebrate #ScienceWeek15 which runs from November 8th to 15th.

On Friday we will be holding a competitive friendly paper plane making contest! 😉

Details below: Planes need two things to stay in the air, “thrust” and “lift”. You will provide the thrust when you throw your plane, and the lift is all down to your design!

You’ve got one week to prepare. Here’s some guidance:

Best of luck everybody!
