STEAM: Paper Airplanes

"Throw" a little STEAM into your vacation with paper airplanes!

Follow the instructions to learn to fold a simple paper airplane, or try a challenging design to make something new! Read a bit about aerodynamics, lift, and thrust while you're folding.

We'll provide the folding paper and printed instructions; there will not be hands-on help. Parents, plan to be available to help your children with tricky folds.

Children's Room, Main Library
