These colorful copters can be used for dozens of investigations.

Description

To launch, simply place the HandCopter's plastic shaft between both hands and spin counterclockwise. These colorful copters can be used for dozens of scientific investigations. Why won't the HandCopter work if launched clockwise? How does this simple "toy" illustrate the Bernoulli Principle? Students can test different variables to determine what will make the HandCopter stay aloft longer or fly straighter. Illustrate the principles of gravity, force, and motion as well as the principles of flight including camber, lift, center of gravity, and momentum. Each package contains five HandCopters. Colors may vary.

### NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

 Elementary Middle School High School 3-PS2-2 Students can use the HandCopter to make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion. MS-PS2-2 Students can use the HandCopter to plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. HS-PS2-1 Students can use the HandCopter to investigate and analyze data to support the claim that Newton's second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass and its acceleration.
