Fore!

Today. Tuesday, to be slightly more precise, we concluded two days of classes. Technically it's one day for each day (one A-day and one B-day). Our opening day challenge was pretty simple. The classes were divided into small groups and challenged to support the golf ball off the lab benches as high as possible. No tape, scissors, staples, or the like. Just paper and a little white golf ball.

How high did they manage to get the golf ball? Well, the low was a scant 5 cm (and that's not from a lack of effort). The high? 115 cm.

Brilliant job everyone. Hope you had fun.

The oldest golf ball you ask? Well there is reference to a wooden ball in 1550. But this image is from a feather ball from 1618.
