Helicopter Drop Experiment


Helicopter Drop!

Make these paper helicopters and discover how they spin. Just download and print out the template below and follow the step by step instructions in our video and get experimenting.  Remember to send us your awesome videos!   

Science behind the experiment:

The helicopter blades make the paper spin when dropped from a height. Gravity pulls the helicopter down. The air resists the movement and pushes up each rotor separately, causing the helicopter to spin.
