ABOUT JOHN COLLINS John's been invited to fly planes on four continents, and for some of the biggest companies in the world. As the world record holder for paper airplane distance, it's fun to introduce new people to paper airplane making and flying. He knows some day, someone he teaches will smash his record. How will they do it? No one knows. He only knows they will. Paper airplanes are something he can get people excited about. It leads to a structured way of thinking. It's one of the most inexpensive science labs on the planet, practically free for the taking. It's a simple idea, and he hopes you'll give it a try.
