Scott Eberhardt: Wind Tunnel Testing

Physics learners read a case study about Scott Eberhardt, a scientist who is testing small aircraft in a wind tunnel, but is running into difficulties. They stop at various points to discuss possible solutions to the measurement mystery. What force is causing the problem? Is it lift? Is it drag? Learners write an essay to address what Scott should do.This is a clever and engaging lesson plan, which would become an A+ by following it with wind tunnel experiments.
