    The theory of aerodynamics is just that, a `theory` so it can`t be real.

    This is all fake I can tell by the pixels.

    They`re using stop motion.

    I can see the strings.

    There`s a cut scene to hide the trick, why couldn`t they do it in one take?

    The plane is CGI.

    They`re witches...burn them!

    no a text book or binder would`ve worked just as well. I`m no scientist, but what I suspect is happening is, as they walk, they are forcing the air that they`re walking past to compress slightly in their hands/against the box, and shoot up and to the back of the glider, giving it just enough lift to maintain altitude.

    Sorry, NCLB testing doesn`t have a test question related to that... fire the teacher for not taking their state standards suppository.

    In today`s sue-happy society, I sure hope the teacher got permission from the parents before posting those kids on the internet.

    Why not cut the blocks in the shape of the glider before shaving? Would save a lot of time.
