        Fetch! | Sky Diver

        In this activity from Fetch! you will learn to build a parachute, then you will design your own, comparing the effect that different materials have on the behavior of the chute. Consider the forces that act on the chute. The force of gravity pulls the chute to the ground. But air trapped in the canopy of the chute— air resistance— makes it fall slowly. Would different materials change the rate of speed at which the parachute falls?
