After students design and test their straw flyers, they will be part of a group that creates, conducts, and evaluates a contest.
The group first determines what they want their contest to measure (distance, speed, accuracy, or time aloft) and give their competition a name.
Then, the group writes what the contestants will have to do during the competition.
And finally, each group explains how the contest is going to be fair. Be sure to include information about multiple trials, controlling variables, establishing objective measurements, and a system for recording the data.
