Mech Faculty featured in APSC Paper Airplane Workshop + Competition

On Friday, March 29th, the Faculty of Applied Science hosted a paper airplane workshop and competition, with insights shared by several Mechanical Engineering faculty members:

Attendees were first treated to four brief but fascinating talks: Dean James Olson on the history and properties of paper; Pete Ostafichuk on paper airplane — or, to be more precise, paper glider — aerodynamics; Rajeev Jaiman on bio-inspired flight; and Nicholas Hui, captain of the UBC AeroDesign team, on the key differences between designing full-sized wooden, and paper aircraft.
