Paper Airplanes by Dr. Jeff Phillips, Senior Research Scientist, IHMC

September 10, 2022

The fall season of Science Saturdays got off to a flying start with Paper Airplanes, led by Dr. Jeff Phillips. Participants learned some things about the history of human flight. They were taught how some of the basic principles of flight apply to both flying animals and to flying machines. Hands-on activities involved folding and testing two paper airplane designs. Discussion focussed on differences between the flight characteristics of the two airplanes.
