We are talking about all things that fly. Parachutes don’t really fly but do help people and things land safely from the air. Have a look at Felix Baumgartner jumping from the edge of space.
We talked about the different shapes of parachutes, about whether they can fly with a hole in them and how to go about making a parachute that would give a LEGO man a safe landing. (We’d love to try this with uncooked eggs but perhaps that is for another day!) Look at the video below from 9 minutes and 22 seconds.
Let’s hope we can realise our dreams just like Felix Baumgartner did.
