Team Wharton A
We sat in a circle discussing our materials and what we could do with them to be both creative and effective. We debated different possibilities, and everyone suggested any ideas that came to mind. Travis recorded the ideas as they came up. As we discussed, we eventually came to a general consensus about our plan.
Here are the possibilities that we discussed:
Create a flat surface with greatest possible surface area
Make it spin
Cut dowel rods and tennis ball (into pieces)
Cut ball and stick paper clip in to use as a fish hook
Cut rods and tape them together to make more than three
Wings 0 cut bag on seams at an angle
Place ball in bag
Remove drawstring and use it for something else, stretch bag
Impale ball and stick rods in
Final drop time
Our final drop time was 3.91 seconds.
