Engineering: Designing and Making Parachutes

We had a look at the movie about Felix Baumgartner following his dream and jumping fron the edge of space.

Here’s a picture he drew when he was only 5 years old.  He did eventually get to follow his dream!

What saved him from being killed as he came back to Earth?  His parachute!

Today we designed and made parachutes that would bring our LEGO men back safely to Earth.
