    I did a STEM challenge with my students to build a paper airplane that can fly as far as possible. I started the STEM session by asking few questions on aerodynamics and explaining the science behind the flight of Airplanes. I explained them about the four forces acting on a flying object namely: LIFT, WEIGHT, DRAG and THRUST. Then we started with the engineering design process: 1) ASK 2) IMAGINE 3) PLAN 4) CREATE 5) IMPROVE and 6) REFLECT. I used your project as a reference sample to make. I did change last few steps and the students really worked well. I converted your steps for dart airplane as graphics and made pdf file. I printed the sample and allotted to students. i hereby attest the SCIENCE BACKGROUND, LAB SHEET and SAMPLE AIRPLANE DESIGN. I hope my work may benefit other teachers as well.
