Dryden Drop Tower

Our students engaged in some great STEM experiences yesterday at Portland State University. Engineering professor Mark Weislogel led our students in desiging anti-gravity experiments that were later placed in the Dryden Drop Tower. The experiments were videotaped during the drop and will be shown to our students before the end of the year in slow motion for analysis. Students also designed their own parachutes using what they learned from a STEAM unit earlier this year. They dropped their parachutes from 5 stories, with accuracy and the longest flight being the goals to reach.
