Have you read about Savannah the engineer yet (see page 34)? Designing and building things is a great way to use the incredible mind Heavenly Father has given you!
Here’s a cool project to make with your family. After you finish it, keep going and try something else. Maybe a rubber band–powered car? Be sure to get an adult’s help.
hammer and nails
one large rubber band or several smaller rubber bands connected
your favorite paper airplane
Hammer two nails into the end of a flat board, as shown. Place the nails at least 6 inches (15 cm) wider than the widest part of your paper airplane.
Connect the rubber band(s) between the nails.
Tape a partly unfolded paper clip on the tip of your airplane, as shown.
Hook the clip over the rubber band, pull back, and launch!
