We were set the challenge, devised by the British Science Association, of having to create a device to move a carton of tomatoes a certain distance.
The tomatoes had to be transported a minimum of one metre along the ground starting from desk height. The tomatoes could not be touched whilst they were moving, catapulted or ‘flown’ in any way. They must be moved in a controlled way, so they don’t just crash into the ground and get squashed.
We had great fun even if most of us weren't very successful!!
