Math- I’ve never gotten to go to Hawaii, but if I did, I know it would be a long airplane ride.  As a matter of fact, it would take somewhere between 10-14 hours depending on the flight path.  Use a piece of paper and design a paper airplane. See how far it flies. Then, make a change to your plane (fold it differently, add a paperclip to add weight, etc.) and see if you can make it fly even farther.  Have fun!
