We are studying constant acceleration So naturally we determined that everything on Earth free falls at a rate of 9.8 m/s/s. I challenged my classes to design an object that would be dropped at a rate that was slower than 9.8 m/s/s. Although it needed to fall slower, it also needed to land directly below the drop point. As you can see in the video one of these was quite successful at that, the other, not so much.
