Design/Fold/Glide Paper Airplane Challenge

Come and try your hand at Design/Build/Fly with the Design/Fold/Glide Paper Airplane Challenge. The challenge is based on this year's AIAA DBF competition rules, and it requires nothing more than a single sheet of paper and a couple of paper clips (both items are provided). The challenge is simple: Can your plane support its passengers? It's fast and easy, and there will be rewards for a successful mission completion!
