Project Manager:Students cut out and create their own paper helicopters based on a template, and make it their own with modifications and colors. When launched above an upward facing fan, the helicopters can fly as high as 20 feet in the air! Alterations can be made by adding or subtracting weight, flipping the direction of spin, and modifying the blades to learn about engineering new designs.
