                      Repeat the launch 4 more times and average the 5 launches.

                         You cannot change the plane design during the 5 launches.

 

              3c.  As  a class, compare team results.  What conclusions can you draw? Why might

                     some planes have more lift than others?    Discuss in your teams and share out to class.

          not hit anything, there is nothing attached to it, and no one else catches or throws it?
