Presenters: Jonathan Minchala , Alyssa Borges , Lily O'Halloran , Samantha Wong

Presentation Description

This presentation involves the physics behind how a parachutes works. The discussion of how forces interact with each other to make you land safely on the ground. A little history from the first parachute to the present parachutes and what parachutes have in store for us in the future and how engineers continue to devlop these massive parachutes.
