Packing up to ship out

Well,  I am loading my bags on the Kennedy that will be my home for the next 6 weeks. In order to prepare for the trip I used the same check list as the cadets to make sure I would be fully provisioned. Click here to see the list, would you make any additions or subtractions to it?

The cadets have packed their their bags for their voyage on the Kennedy. Can you think of what kind of travel bag you would need to hold and protect your laptop computer, cellular phone, and other essential items for your travel and still be light enough to carry? If you could design your bag to meet the needs of this trip, what kind of bag would you have? Does it have to be water resistant? In this activity you will use the engineering design process to generate research questions, brainstorm ideas, design, build, and test a prototype of your travel bag.

See how this engineer built his
Try to design your bag, will it work?
