6th Class Science- Air Resistance

6th Class Science- Air Resistance

We investigated the effects of air resistance on the speed at which something falls. This began with Galileo’s experiment all the way to modern day experiments such as Brian Cox’s bowling ball and feathers investigation in NASA’s air vacuum. We then designed and created our own parachutes and decided which designs worked best for maximising … Continue reading 6th Class Science- Air Resistance
