Designing Parachutes

Designing Parachutes

Fourth class were busy working in groups designing parachutes. They were given a number of various materials (felt,newspaper,plastic and a j-cloth), a ball of string, masking tape and a scissors. The aim was to design and build a parachute that would safely land a 'Lego man' to the ground form a specific height. The parachute which took the longest to land the 'Lego man' were the winners. Each group had very interesting designs and there was only a fraction of a second between the winners and the runners-up. Thankfully all 'Lego men' had a safe landing!
