FCU Paper Plane Contest


Louis Lin & Kevin Yang

At Feng Chain University, each department has its own customs, history and
special characteristics. Our department, the Department of Aerospace Engineering, has a unique activity every year, the Paper Plane Contest. In this activity, contestants combine their professional knowledge with their childhood passion for play.

The Aerospace Student Association (ASA) uses this simple toy, a paper airplane, to remind everyone what it felt like to be a child, and hopes to use this contest to draw all FCU Aerospace Engineering students closer together. Actually, if you are not an Aerospace student or even if you have never made a paper airplane before, you can participate in this activity, too. All you need to do is fill out an entry form and pay NT$20 to cover the cost of the materials!


Of course, like with all contests, there are rules you must follow. First, you have to use ONLY the materials that the ASA provides. Second, you cannot use any glue or staples to hold your paper plane together. Finally, you have to make your entire paper plane out of just one piece of paper.  That sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? Oh, and every year ASA will add more strange required item in the materials package just for fun.


Remember, not only Aerospace Engineering students made paper planes when they were children; many of us did! This year, break out of your old concepts about paper planes, relive your childhood, and have fun at the Aerospace Students Association’s paper plane contest. We’ll see you there!
