Race against the force of air with this kinesthetic STEM activity!
Wearing speed parachutes, students sprint to feel the force of drag and the impact that has on their motion. Students can try two different sizes of parachutes to determine how surface area impacts drag. Students work in teams to conduct experiments, record data, and analyze motion based on results.
ResistanceRace Kit includes 2 parachutes (1 ea small, large), 3 Pacer 200TM Stopwatches, and lesson direction that is adaptable for grades 2-5 and 6-10. The included lesson direction details setup instructions, activities by grade level, learning objectives, and teaching suggestions to expand lessons. Recommended for Elementary and up.
