It’s Lab_13 Irchester’s 3rd birthday!
To celebrate this and the anniversary of the Wright Brothers original design for a “Flying Machine”, we are going to have a “Flight” theme to our day.
We want YOU to be involved too!
There will be three competitions on during the day.
Design a paper airplane and test the distance it can fly across the playground.
Design a paper helicopter and test how slowly it can fall while still spinning.
Design a kite and time how long it will stay in the air for.
We will provide templates to work from and you can adapt how you like at home. You might need to test the materials used, lengths of different parts, etc.
Entries should be submitted on Friday May 23rd.
Times of test flights to be confirmed.
Templates available from link below
