Measurement Mania -- Flying Saucers

One of the activities of our Measurement Mania event was building flying saucers. Students made flying saucers from circles cut out of poster board. We didn't have time to test fly them on that day, but now that our springtime weather has improved, we have gone out and measured how far our saucers fly. Students also had the opportunity to modify their saucers and examine what changing their saucer designs would make. Lots of measuring and lots of discussing what the data that they collected might mean...
