This is the assignment students will complete during this activity:
Given the following supplies; a Barbie doll, one meter of yarn or string, 10 rubber bands, 10 inches of tape, and 5 small paper clips, your group will need to design a bungee cord to safely plunge Barbie towards a bucket of water. The goal is to get Barbie closest to the water without getting her hair wet. Her drop will be about two meters above the bucket of water. The bungee cord needs to be tied to her feet! You will be allowed to do a number of trials so that you can make adjustments so that Barbie has a successful jump.
