Solve the Fall
This classic design challenge examines how to control the fall of an object. In this case, you will be trying to stop a bouncy ball from … that’s right … bouncing! The multiple solutions and variations make this a great activity for all ages. Although this can be a quick activity, as you play with gravity and force, you may find yourself prototyping and testing for an hour or more!
Drop a bouncy ball from a height of six feet without letting it bounce (your ball and device must remain together in one piece).
What happens after the fall? See if you can get the ball to stay in one place or roll to a specific spot.
