Problem: Can I build a parade float that can travel 50 cm and hold 100g?
Hypothesis: I think I can make a parade float that can hold 100g and travel at least 100cm.
plastic golf balls
First I took four ping-pong balls, four bamboo skewers and eight elastic bands.I put the balls on the bamboo skewers and tied( sort of ) the elastic bands on the bamboo skewers. Second I found a large piece of cardboard and hot glued the bamboo skewers on the cardboard. Third I found four large pieces of cardboard and hot glued them onto the first piece of cardboard to make a wall. Then I collected cardboard strips and made two triangles.I made the triangles into a Magen David.✡️Then I hot glued the Magen David in the parade float. After I made more designs like flags of Israel on the sides.
I then tested my parade float by putting a 100g weight on it. I then put in on a ramp to see how far it would travel.
Results: My parade float went one-hundred and ten cm.
