You will build a parachute for a GoPro camera and launch it into the air to see if you can have it land softly. You will build it using a garbage bag, string, duct tape, ruler and marker. You will use the following formula for pi, C= π*d = 2*π*r to make your parachute. Watch the following video provided to you by your teacher. The video will help you learn how to make your own parachute.
Your group is going to build a parachute out of a plastic garbage bag, string, tape and hot glue. If you have a GoPro, you will secure it to the parachute and launch or drop the parachute from a high spot like bleachers or second story window. Your group will need to calculate the diameter and circumference of the parachute using the circumference formula.
