    • dart
    • nick
  • Describe at least 1 idea you tried that FAILed. Why was it a FAILure? How did you overcome that Failure?
nick's
  • Hypothesize: What specific design elements might make a difference when testing for accuracy, distance and time aloft? Why?
    • Accuracy - 1ft 2in
    • Distance - 19ft 2in
    • Time Aloft - 2.2sec
