Paper Helicopters by Dr. Chris Schmidt Wetekam, IHMC
November 21, 2015
November 2015 “Paper Helicopters”, presented by Dr. Chris Schmidt Wetekam, Research Scientist at IHMC. Students learned about the basic physics of flight and then built paper helicopters. They tested their helicopters in wind tunnels and tried to improve them, one design change at a time. In another activity, they constructed a flying vehicle choosing from a selection of supplies. These were also tested in the wind tunnel. This Science Saturday was sponsored by the Kugelman Foundation.
