Gossamer Wings and the Alchemy of Flight


Take one brilliant middle-school science teacher with a love of hang-gliding.   Add a classroom of typical teenagers, a phone book, a stack of printer paper, and a pair of scissors.  Watch something truly magical take place, as a fleet of miniature planes takes to the air on gossamer wings.   Who wants to work when there are origami planes to fly?

  2. Hi Rosie and Sallie:

    Thanks for joining me here! I am just gob-smacked by this science teacher, who makes the physics of hang-gliding so concrete and so much fun.
