PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sometimes, in physics or just science, you need something that allows you to collect data for the sake of the data. This Flying Ring or tube is related to a paper airplane but is most definitely not one.

Students make a prototype out of copy paper and teach themselves to throw it. They collect distance data, then make a second ring out of cardstock and repeat the process. This is a good activity for a) following directions, b) the scientific method, and c) measuring in the metric system. I save this until I have one of those weird schedule days so I can still keep everyone on the same page.

This product has the interesting ability to be amazing to elementary up through high school students and I often hear about it from parents.

This product includes teacher instructions, a 17 slide power point presentation on aerodynamics and student data tables.

My record for a cardboard ring is 58 meters outside, without a tailwind.
