Push and Pull with Parachutes

This term, the Year 2 students have been learning about forces and how they effect the way objects move as part of their Inquiry unit. The students worked collaboratively with a partner to design, build and test their very own parachute to explore push and pull forces such as gravity and drag. After testing their parachute by dropping it from the top of the playground, they experimented with different variables and made changes to improve their parachute.
