Parachute Knight

Week 3 of Summer STEM from Your Library

Experiment with air resistance by making parachutes!

You will need string, a straw, a sandwich bag and/or coffee filter, and a toy figure. 

  1. Pull one of the strings through the straw. Cut off the zipper portion of the bag.
  2. Reach into the bag and pull both bottom corners in so they’re inside the bag.
  3. Tie an end of the string to each bottom corner of the bag.
  4. Pull the next string through the straw. Tie the ends to the knight.
