In Ahia Maia class we have been looking at air resistance and drag by creating and testing parachutes.
The problem: Mr Egg wanted to try sky diving but doesn't have a parachute!
The design brief: Design a parachute to get Mr Egg from the top of the play scape to the ground safely.
We split into teams, developed parachute designs, refined them and tested them.
Well done to Chloe, Maddie and Bea from team "Mr Egg's Life is in Our Hands" who developed the winning design. With Mr Egg inside it took their parachute 2.5 seconds to get from the top of the playscape to the ground.
