|Use origami to build the farthest flying airplane, and win the challenge. TEAMS looked for the farthest flying airplanes throughout the nation - the best from each class. Students sent in the written directions (diagrams were acceptable) for folding their airplanes so they could be "built" for the "fly-off."|
