Our Class' Standard Test Flight Procedure

Directions: As a class, you must decide how each glider will be launched during the tests. Will they be tossed? If so, from what height, and how hard? Will they be launched by a rubberband or other device? Will they be launched from a tilted surface? If so, at what angle?

Once your class has thoroughly discussed the launch procedure and has come to agreement, then record procedure below.
