We had to do two science projects for the science fair this year. Zander decided to do one on paper airplanes. He was trying to decide if the size of paper determined how far the airplane would fly.
He folded all his airplanes the same way, using a different size of paper for each one.
This was a lot of fun for Zander to do, and he found out that the smallest airplane flew the best.
Morgan decided to do her project with egg shells. She took egg shells and reinforced the broken edge with masking tape. She then used the pointed side of the egg for one experiment and the rounded side for another to see which would hold the most weight. Each experiment used 4 halves of eggshell.
She had quite the stacks of books going before they toppled over when the shells broke.
I think the final tally was 26 or 27 books. I think it was the pointed shells that held the most books/weight. It was also a fun project and she had a great time doing it!
