Given: One good light bulb, one business envelope, one rubber band, one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet paper, one paper clip, 1 – 6″ piece of tape and 1 – 12″ piece of string.

The team is given 4 minutes to think and devise a method, using all or some of the materials given, to protect the light bulb from breaking when it is dropped from a height of 6 feet onto a brick. Note: the materials may be altered. The team receives five extra points if the light bulb still “lights” afterwards.
