Ideas Take Flight During 5th Grade STEM Project

This week, the 5th graders took part in a STEM activity where they learned about the science of flight and how planes fly. Students were then asked to fold a paper airplane to see what they could do to make their airplanes fly further and stay in the air longer. The culminating activity was a contest to see whose paper airplane could fly the longest distance and whose plane could stay in the air the longest. The distance winners were Mason Levy, Alexis Berry and Justin Taylor. The winners for most time aloft were Hudson Trienens, Jenny Albrecht, and Jocelyn Dikeman.
