Incoming.....Parachute testing. 

As part of year 5's science topic of forces we have been studying air resistance. 

We worked in groups to create 4 parachutes of different sizes. 

Parachute A was 15cm by 15cm 

Parachute B was 30cm by 30cm 

Parachute C was 45cm by 45cm

Parachute D was 60cm by 60cm 

Then we dropped them from a height to test how long it takes to fall to the ground.  Can you see which one was the quickest? Can you tell which one was the slowest?

  • Bridge Building

    Published 12/06/20

They had to be able to span 30cm, have a clearance of 15cm and be able to support a minimum of 500g. All the materials available were priced up so the children had to also try and keep the cost as low as possible. We discovered some very interesting ways of solving the various problems that arose.
