Free Fall…From SPACE!/Nanotechnology in the Classroom

This Free Fall…From SPACE!/Nanotechnology in the Classroom lesson plan also includes:

Provide the details about Felix Baumgartner's sky jump from the far reaches of our atmosphere, 39,045 meters up! Then get your physics free fallers to evaluate the factors that played a role in his acceleration, the time to reach maximum speed, and maneuvering. In one question on the worksheet, learners must calculate how long it took for him to reach maximum speed. The rest of the questions involve critical thinking skills. It is recommended that if you use the lesson plan, that you also find a video online of Mr. Baumgartner's feat.
