STEM Students Learn About Parachuting

01 December 2015

On the 19th November the STEM club were lucky to be able to chat with an experienced skydiver, Pam Snow, who is also a primary teacher here at NAIS Pudong.

Miss Snow was keen to show the students how the parachute worked, the dynamics and difficulties of having a backup parachute and even allowed a lucky member to try it on for size! She also showed us some filming of her skydiving and we discussed formations and patterns which are pretty challenging to get into at 12000ft!

We are hoping that some of the students will be inspired to take it up as their new hobby, and if not, perhaps they will have a better appreciation for the sport. All of this research will be useful for the students as they develop their entries for next year’s Google Science Fair.
