Program Description
STEAM at a distance. The Paper Airplane Guy, John Collins, was one of the first to take his Paper Airplane STEM School Assembly into the virtual space presenting so far for WIRED, Make, Atria University in India, St George’s School in Vancouver, SC Johnson, and Cameo Cinema. The Paper Airplane Guy's 45-minute virtual show demonstrates a variety of aerodynamic principles: Lift, Drag, Gravity, Wing Loading, Control Surfaces, Dihedral Angle, Theories of Lift, Stalls, Canard Design, Scale Effects, Glide Ratio, Sink Rate, and the secret of the world record paper airplane. Twenty-four of John's original designs provide proof for the theories, plus a whole lot of fun for students! It’s real aerodynamics instruction, teaching the physics of flight, demonstrated and explained using paper airplanes. It’s fun and the materials are inexpensive and readily available. Includes 30 minutes of live and engaging instructional demonstrations, followed by 15 minutes of hands-on paper airplane making. Best for grades 4 and older. There is a version of the virtual school assembly available for K-3 that is appropriate for their level of developmental dexterity and fine motor skills.
