In this experiment we’ll be making the Ultimate Paper Glider.
You won’t believe how far your glider will fly or how little effort it takes.
STEP1 - Start with your piece of paper in the landscape position and fold it so you can see two pyramids.
STEP2 - Next, fold the long edge of your paper over about 1cm in from the edge.
STEP3 - Repeat this again for a second fold.
STEP4 - One more fold for luck!
STEP5 - Work you hand around your glider so that the two ends can connect together. Add a piece of tape at the ends in order to secure your glider in place.
STEP6 - To launch your Ultimate Paper Glider just throw it gently in just the same way that you would throw a javelin!
Our Ultimate Paper Glider is a little bit different to a ‘normal’ paper aeroplane as it doesn’t have wings as such.
But it does work in the same kind of way as a regular paper aeroplane.
Gravity pulls the glider down and the whole thing acts as a wing and lifts the glider up.
Because our glider produces very little air resistance and is nice and light it can cover some real distance with very little effort!
