Learning how to fold the best paper airplane in the world is just the start. You’ll learn the adjusting tricks to make the plane fly better and farther than average paper airplanes. You’ll also be treated to ongoing demonstrations of planes that circle back, spin, tumble, flip over and fly back upside down, flap their wings, and some fly forever (actual forever may vary).  Learn the science behind these tricks or just enjoy the show.
