Introduction to the engineering design process via paper airplanes

start of class
Start of class
  • Do Now: Average the following sets of numbers.
    • { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5}  3
    • {5, 10, 10, 15, 15, 20}  12.5
    • {8, 4, 5, 9}  6.5
today s learning objectives
Today’s learning objectives
  • Introduction of the engineering design process.
  • “ABCDE” is our mnemonic for the engineering design process.
  • Use “ABCDE” to design a paper airplane which flies as far as possible
what does abcde mean
What does ABCDE mean?
  • A = Analyze
    • What are we doing?
  • B = Brainstorm
    • Think of different ways to do it
  • C = Choose
    • Select a design
  • D = Do
    • Make a prototype
  • E = Evaluate
    • How did it work? Can it be improved?

And keep refining your solution until it’s as good as it can be!

paper airplane challenge
Paper Airplane Challenge
  • In groups of 2 or 3, make a paper airplane that will fly as far as possible.
  • Distance is measured perpendicular to the direction of the throw. Curves and diagonals do not count!

WINNER!

your materials
Your materials:
  • Three sheets of paper.
  • Three paperclips.
  • No replacements will be issued. If you “mess up” some of your materials, you will need to do without them.
  • Part of the challenge is the restricted material supply!
  • You may cut and fold the paper as you like.
the steps to follow
The steps to follow…
  • Choose a first airplane design. Throw it three times, record the distances, and calculate the average distance.
  • Then make a guess about what might make the plane fly better. You may change whatever you like, but only change ONE THING. This is your “hypothesis.”
  • Record what change you made. Then again throw the plane three times and calculate the average distance.
  • Repeat this process
homework
Homework
  • Write at least half a page explaining today’s experiment. (Use pictures, if it helps to explain) Be sure to include:
    • Who you were working with, and what each person did.
    • What changes you made to the first airplane.
    • Which change made the biggest difference.
    • How might somebody make an airplane that flies even farther?
end of class
End of class
  • Put your airplanes in the table folders
  • Put your data sheets in the table folders
  • Please put the chairs up
