"Loop-de-Loop Flyers" Trailer
Students experiment with different shapes to see which ones are the best for flying in loops rather than in a straight line. This relates to air pressure, surface area, friction, lift, and drag. This video also includes one of Mr. Mac’s crazy stories, “Jack and Jill and the Vultures,” to help students remember the lesson. Difficulty: Easy
