This lesson supports the Engineering in Elementary Adventures Flying Technologies curriculum, created by Museum of Science in Boston. Drop copters fly through the air by spinning to the ground, similar to the way a helicopter would land. They move relatively slowly because they have blades that create air resistance. This force counteracts the gravity pulling the drop copters toward the ground. Drop Copter Video: https://youtu.be/zTakrjE9yCo Scientist Profile: Aeronautical Engineer: http://tinyurl.com/kuoop4l.
