In this session, we have a brief journey through the history of manned flight which includes Leonardo Da Vinci, the first attempts to fly, the Wright brothers and the fastest plane ever to fly.
As an introduction to Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion we will guide the students through making a great paper plane that flies straight and level and then conduct some experiments to investigate it.
- Gain an understanding of the history of early flight
- Understand the 3rd Law of Motion using everyday examples
- Utilise the 3rd Law to conduct flight experiments with paper planes
- Learn how to make a paper plane that flies straight and level
