Experimental Design Assessment

Your experiment will investigate the variables that affect the rate of
descent for a paper helicopter. You must design, conduct, and report
the experiment BY THE END OF CLASS. The teacher will supply
helicopter template, paper clips, a timer, and a meter stick.

Several variables affect the rate of descent for a paper helicopter. They
include: the length of the rotor, the amount of paperclips, the size of
paper clips, and how the rotors are bent. You need as a team to decide
which variable to test.
