Skill Level: Aeronautical Engineering Level 1
Badges Earned: Aeronautical Engineering Level 1
Description: To earn your Level 1 Aero Badge, you’re going to have to dig deep and make some of the most intricate paper airplanes you’ve ever tried. If you eventually want to build a quad copter, you need to understand how things fly, and the aerodynamics of flying objects. Part two asks that you design a plastic propellor toy that can be used for your own amusement.
For this first part, choose three separate paper airplanes to create. You’ll mostly only need paper, a ruler, and scissors. Take pictures, and keep a record of which ones fly farther.

Some tips along the way: Always document your process. Take pictures and video, if you can. Why? Creating a “demo video” of all of your projects. Why? They can be used as evidence of completion. One demo video can be enough evidence to receive numerous badges.
