As part of their work on forces Yr.6 investigated what factors affect how quickly a parachute would fall. Some groups chose to change the shape of the parachute, some the material it was made from and some the surface area. Once they had finished their investigation each group selected their best parachute to compete against the other groups. These parachutes were dropped from the ICT Suite windows and their descents were timed. All of them were successful although one got stuck in a tree!
