Hi, i have a project I am currently working on for school and i have to design a freeway type barrier that can stop a truck and keep an egg from breaking inside the truck. Anyone got any ideas because everything ive tryed so far has been crappy. Here are the rules Each team shall construct a freeway barrier capable of stopping a truck preventing the breakage of one USDA large egg. Teams may use only: 1. one (1) sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 inch sheet of 20 lb. paper 2. one (1) one inch strip of scotch tape Competition guidelines: * Each team shall consist of 2-3 students. * Items listed above are THE ONLY materials permitted to solve problem. * Teams will be provided paper and tape * Each team is to fashion a suitable freeway barrier out of paper that successfully brings truck to a complete stop without its cargo (egg) falling off cradle. * Truck will be rolled down a ramp appoximately 7-1/2" wide by 48" long. * Ramp rise will be approximately 3-1/2" over 48". * No tissue, rubber bands, foam or other material may be used. * Teams will be given three attempts to demonstrate that barrier successfully brings truck to a complete stop without breaking egg. * Eggs remaining in cradle will be measured for forward movement. * Team with the least egg movement over three attempts will be declared winner. * In case of ties (three successful stops by more than one team) ramp will be raised one inch and runs repeated until one team has the least movement with egg remaining in cradle. Sry if this is in the wrong forum, im new here and not really familiar with things yet, please move it to the correct forum if needed.
