Science Week Paper Plane Designs


Our paper plane entries are coming in from the aeroplane designers of the future, but which one will fly the furthest?

There is some debate whether the larger ones will stay up longer because they will catch more air or if the small ones will go the distance because they are lighter. Perhaps narrow ones will fly further because they are more streamline?

What are your top tips for building a plane and why will your tips make them fly the furthest?



Joshua’s question

Joshua wants to know which part of our flowers is most important to keep them alive?

We have decided to take different parts off our flowers to see if they will die faster.

We have one with no leaves, one with no flowers, one with no petals and one with no stem.

They are all in water and in sunlight.

Which one do you think will die first?
