Skydiving



WuShock is planning to start skydiving, but for a skydiver to land safely and smoothly you need to have a good parachute. The future engineers of the SEEDS program have been challenged to design a model of a parachute that can be used in skydiving, and the best design will be used to make a custom parachute for WuShock.

Designing a good model of a parachute requires good management of time, materials, and finances. Participants will be placed in teams and they will be competing against other teams for the winning design. The team that scores the highest in all the combined categories will be the winner for the day. This activity will require basic sketching, creativity and imagination of the designers.
