Creating and flying a paper airplane seems pretty straightforward. Making a powered and controlled paper airplane, observing it in flight and improving its design through experimentation is challenging and fun. Yet, this simple concept of flying paper airplanes is one of the main cornerstones of the broad field of aeronautics, and foundational to STEM learning.With STEM careers expanding exponentially, the study of aeronautics can lead to high paying jobs. PowerUp learning tools introduce students to various aspects of aviation.
The POWERUP 2.0 electric paper airplane works as a tool to assist students as they begin to visualize equations. They learn about surface area, density, altitude, humidity and other factors that go into flight
