All Month Long
Danville Library STEAM Celebration Series presents: The Paper Airplane Guy
@Virtual – from your home!
The Paper Airplane Guy’s 45 minute show demonstrates a wide variety of aerodynamic principles: Lift, Drag, Gravity, Wing Loading, Control Surfaces, Dihedral Angle, Theories of Lift, Stalls, Canard Design, Scale Effects, Glide Ratio, Sink Rate, and the crazy cool secret of the world record plane. 24 of John’s original designs provide real proof for the theories, plus a whole lot of fun! World Record Holder John Collins has created a program designed for grades 4 and up. Younger students will enjoy the demonstration, but may lack the fine motor skills to fold the world record plane. Sponsored by the Danville Library Endowment You can view the recorded video on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ccclib or YouTube at www.youtube.com/user/theccclib
