How does a Parachute Work?

06.02.2020 – Today in science, we made our parachutes following the designs that we planned last week. We used our new knowledge about forces, air resistance and gravity to come up with parachutes that we thought would fall the slowest, and therefore be the safest to use!

We all worked very well in our teams, and have designed a range of parachutes to put to the test outdoors!
