We regret to inform all students and schools that we will not be holding any Paper Plane Challenge event this year – due to COVID restrictions and associated difficulties!
Last year, we received well over 300 entries from 76 schools around Australia and one international school from Iran in our online 2020 STANSW YOUNG SCIENTIST PAPER PLANE CHALLENGE. Leaderboards show the final results and Gold, silver and bronze medals were sent to the top three distance throws and airtime throws in each of age categories.
“Congratulations to all students who competed in the World’s Biggest Paper Plane Competition for schools”

“The 2020 STANSW Young Scientist Paper Plane Challenge had winners from Iran, Queensland, Victoria, ACT, WA and NSW.
Over 25% of all entered schools were regional and 40% were public schools“
If Social Distancing Restrictions are eased for 2022, we will once again be running a 2022 Paper Plane State Championships at a location to be advised in the week following National Science Week.
