Flight Data Using Bar Charts & Line Graphs
Your mission: To use your engineering skills to build paper aircraft that fly higher, faster, further, longer, or any other measurable goal.
If you fly an airplane across the room and laugh, you are a child.
If you fly an airplane across the room, laugh, measure the distance, and record your results, you are a scientist.
If you fly an airplane across the room, laugh, measure and record the results, AND make changes to your design, you are an AEROSPACE ENGINEER.
