6th Grade Science - RoboCopters

Recently, sixth graders learned about RoboCopters (whirlygigs). RoboCopters are made from paper and imitate the blades of a helicopter by spinning when dropped from high places. Their challenge was to make the fastest spinning RoboCopter. The students designed, tested, and redesigned until they got the prototype they were happy with. Students learned about drag, resistance, and that not only does the weight matter but also the length of the blades.
