Reflections

Consider, Discuss & Hypothesize:
  • Describe at least 2 ideas you "borrowed" from other groups. How did these ideas help/improve your plane?
    • We got the idea of making our own paper airplane.
    • We got the idea of making the dart again.
  • Describe at least 1 idea you tried that FAILed. Why was it a FAILure? How did you overcome that FAILure?
    • We were trying to make Nick's paper airplane but it failed. Instead we all made different airplanes.
  • Hypothesize: What specific design elements might make a difference when testing for accuracy, distance and time aloft? Why?
    • Accuracy - 2 ft
    • Distance - 11 ft
    • Time Aloft - 1.5
