About the event

You can see the recording of the masterclass here -

Have you ever folded a paper plane and watched it soar, wondering if it could do more than just glide straight? Well, now's your chance to find out! 

In this fun and engaging session, we're not just making any ordinary paper planes; we're diving into the amazing world of origami to create planes that can perform awesome acrobatics in the air!

Imagine folding your very own paper plane that can twist, turn, and loop in the sky! In this masterclass, you'll learn all about the secrets that make planes fly. We'll explore the magic behind the center of gravity – that special spot that helps keep your plane balanced. You'll also discover how different forces act on an airplane, making it zoom and whoosh through the air. And guess what? We'll even play with moving surfaces on your paper plane to see how they change its flight. Every fold and tweak you make will teach you something new. So, join us and become a paper plane scientist! Let's experiment together, observe our amazing paper plane acrobatics, and most importantly, have a ton of fun!


To make the most of this masterclass, participants need to bring

1) 5 sheets of A4 sized regular copy paper

2) a pair of scissors.

3) a stapler.

4) Pencils and 6 inch Ruler/Scale.

5) rubber bands of various lengths and sizes

About the Speaker

Rupin Chheda has a background in engineering, and is a tinkerer at heart. None of his childhood toys survived in one piece for more than 30 minutes! He was always curious to know what’s inside them. This curiosity led him to neatly unscrew all his toys and gadgets and explore what’s inside.  His life story has been about significant engineering failures, like building a 3D printer multiple times (and not succeeding even once), building softwares that no one ever used, or just generally fooling around with new things and systems. The larger idea has always been about building things without any preconceived notions of what success looked like. The absolute fun of creating is not being overwhelmed by constraints!  On the professional front, he has almost two decades of experience in the IT development and consulting industry, 0 to 1 startup scaling, and has served as Assistant VP for WhiteHatJr.  He currently leads the STREAM practice for the prestigious Kanakia Educational Institutions in Mumbai.

Rupin facilitated a course on bio-inspired robotics in the 2023 Gifted Summer Program.
