Last week the Grade 6 students participated in Crestwood’s first annual “Drop Zone Contest.”
Students put their knowledge of gravity, drag and air pressure to the test and built their own custom parachutes. Each group collected and used recycled materials such as grocery bags and plastic dry cleaning covers. After completing the project, students attached their parachute to a miniature paratrooper.
Finally, each paratrooper+parachute was put to the test and dropped from the top of the Gym. The grade 6s had a blast and learned a lot in the process!
