In Science, we have been learning about gravity and air resistance. We worked in groups to make parachutes considering the size of the tissue paper used to make the parachute and the string length which attached the parachute to a small box.

As well as testing which parachute stayed in the air the longest, we placed an egg into the small box attached to the parachute. We did this to test the air resistance force against gravity, as the parachutes which took longer to fall to the ground did not break the egg.
