Here are some photos from our final parachute design challenge. It culminated with a drop off the roof with the help of our custodian Mustafa. It was a breezy day and one of our lucky groups had the benefit of a gust sending their well designed parachute over the playground staying in the air for 13 seconds. Longest time yet! Over the next few weeks we will study air resistance and how it played a role in our design’s success.
Photos from the winning parachute. It got lifted off across the schoolyard. Can you find it??
