Students will be introduced to what a hypothesis is from a basic definition. Student's will follow simple step by step directions in order to create 2 different paper airplanes.
Students are encouraged to decorate their paper airplanes after class with colouring utensils.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Younger learners who find fine motor skills a challenge may required adult guidance.
