During this lab scouts were looking at the forces acting on a parachute diving a bit deeper into velocity creating their own parachutes.
During this lab we built our own hot air balloons. We had to test them and modify them before finally filling them with hot air to fly.
For this lab scout build land yachts out of Legos with a differ paper sails. Using force, air drag, mass and surface area scouts are competing in team to make the fastest yacht.
During this lab scouts talked about mass, surface area and frontal area. We looked at the relationship between object mass and surface area and how it influences velocity as it falls.
