Today's Class: Design Challenge 1.
Imagine this scene. You need to copy sections from your textbook into a computer document for a presentation. The job has to be done immediately. You have a computer and the textbook on the low desk. When you sit down and open the book a problem arises. You forgot your glasses, and you can't read the book. In the desk drawer you find some index cards, rubber bands, and paper clips. How can you quickly make a book support that will raise the book closer to your eyes?
You will first discuss the problem with your group.
Then you will try out some solutions using the materials you found in the desk.
Your goal is to support the book at least 7.5 centimeters above the desk.
You MUST be able to read the book and turn the pages while the book stays open on the support.
Your group will have 10 minutes to complete this challenge.
Remember to record your Criteria and Constraints.
Develop an operational hypothesis as an If/Then Statement. Remember that it must be testable. Also record your NULL hypothesis.
