Science Club Parachutes

This week, Science Club had to design their own parachutes. 
We talked about the helpful effects of air resistance and then they set about designing their own versions. The objective  was simple: the parachute which took the longest time to fall to the ground was the winner. The children also considered the weight of the object hanging from the parachute and whether this would affect the resistance.
