NSW Science Teacher’s Association Young Scientist

The NSW Science Teacher’s Association is passionate about all things science! We created the Young Scientist competition to inspire inquiry based learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths! Today at the Paper Plane Challenge inquiring young minds learnt all about the aerodynamics of paper plane folding! What did it take to make your plane stay aloft for the longest time? Or what special folds made your plane go the distance?

Our captain for the event Dylan from Paper Pilots brought his amazing enthusiasm to the event. Dylan is an inspiring public speaker and also is available to hire for ‘FLIGHT SCHOOL’ which is an interactive workshop that focuses on ‘forces’ and is closely aligned with the National Science and Technology Curriculum!
