Electric Launch Pad for your Paper Planes

Electronic Paper Plane LauncherImagine having an educational diy kit as a child that lets you build an electronic launch pad for your paper planes. Within those hours we previously spent pencil fighting, hacky sacking, and just hanging, we would launch our quickly built paper planes at a speed of up to 31 miles per hour.

This educational kit was designed by specialists at Middlesex University and includes all parts needed for building an electric launcher for paper planes.

Unfortunately this kit does not include goggles in case children (or adults) decide to test the launch on each other. Maybe school sponsored races or projects could encourage creativity and maintain safety at the same time.

The Electric Paper Plane Launcher Educational Kit can be found at the Online Science Mall for only $14.95.

    Hi Chessnoid and Avinash, thank you for your comments.

    @Chessoid: I would have spent hours launching paper planes if I had this as a kid. It is a cool kit to come up with.

    @Avinash: You’re right. I also saw that there is a high chance kids will begin launching paper planes, but then may move to erasers, pencils and other stuff. And those at that speed, even less, could be dangerous.
