 +======PowerUp Paper Planes======
 +{{:​digital_literacy:​technology_resources:​powerup_planes:​powerup.jpg?​nolink |}}PowerUp brings traditional paper airplanes into the modern age of technology by adding a motorised propeller (PowerUp 2.0) or smartphone remote-controlled rudder (PowerUp 3.0) that really make things fly.
  
 +Fold a paper plane in the traditional way, then just clip on the motor and propeller. Fire up the app to connect via Bluetooth, start the propeller and then launch your creation into the sky.  Planes can fly up to 60m, with 10 mins of flight time per charge.
