Build a Catapult Plane – Explore Flight


This week’s Nanogirl challenge is to build a catapult plane. Watch the video to see how Nanogirl builds hers and download the pdf to learn about how planes fly. Test your plane and share how far it can fly.
Complete the Nanogirl activity – Treasure Hunt – Create your science toolkit to help you with this activity



Take a photo of your catapult plane or record your plane flying to share on your blog.

Write how far your plane can fly. Does it fly further indoors or outdoors – why do you think that is?
