Air Resistance

Today, Sycamore Class were set the task of investigating air resistance. We had to imagine that we had been asked to design a parachute for the Super Skydiving Company, who want to make sure that their parachute allows customers to fall from aeroplanes as slowly and safely as possible.
We tested out three different parachutes made from different materials to see which material caused the parachute to fall to the ground the slowest and therefore had the greatest air resistance.
