INTERACTIVE : Students get to fold and test their skill with the record design, as well as ask questions.
THE CLASS: Customized for every grade level. Up to grade 4, there would be little or no math; just concepts with a hint on how to quantify ideas, ie counting squares on wing surfaces, etc.

* Elementary
* Middle School
* High School
* College

After Grade 4 and according to grade and ability level, students will be exposed to a variety of aerodynamic concepts through practical demonstrations with paper airplanes, such as: Wing Loading, Glide, Ratio, Sink Rate, Dihedral Angle, Four Basic Forces, Control Surfaces, Stalls, Center of Gravity, Center of Lift, Drag, etc.

Classes can be based on one, two or a series of 5-10 Classes (depending on grade level and math ability) ending with the students receiving a certificate as they complete each module, and a Grand Master Certificate if they successfully complete the classes and an interview with John.
