Paper Helicopters for #scienceweek

The competition is heating up in Craggagh ahead of our Plane Making Competition which will take place on Friday.

We’ve discovered that our paper planes will need both thrust and lift to stay in the air. We will provide thrust by throwing our planes…that’s the easy part! The lift must come from our design.


  Today we explored gravity and air resistance by making paper helicopters.

This will help us to understand the importance of the design of our paper planes.

There’ll be prizes on offer on Friday, including a Folens’ Christmas Annual for the winner from each class and this fabulous DK Knowledge Encyclopaedia for the overall winners.

  
Good luck everybody!
