Lets get started!
Here are the things you need:
|Aluminum Foil Paper||1||-||-|
|Cotton thread||1 spool||-||-|
|Ice cream sticks||2||-||-|
We have to design a food container that keeps our food from spilling and maintain its temperature.
STEP 1: Draw a rectangle on the aluminum sheet. The length of:
- Longer side is 24cm.
- Shorter side is 8cm.
STEP 2: Follow the line marks and cut the sheet with a scissor. This is how your sheet will look like after it's been cut.
STEP 3: Place the cup on one end of the sheet and start rolling it up. To get it covered like this.
Turn the bottom part of the sheet down with the cup base. This will allow the cup to stand on a flat surface.
STEP 4: Cut a 10cm x 10cm piece out of the remaining aluminum sheet.
STEP 5: Place this piece on the top of the cup to make a lid.
Carefully turn the corners of the sheet towards the wall of the cup.
STEP 6: The cardboard is our base. But if you just place the container on it, it will float away. Perhaps a locking mechanism is needed!
Think of a simple locking system..
STEP 7: Grab that thread ball and follow these steps. Cut two pieces of threads, 20cm each.
STEP 8: Wind the string onto the cardboard and stick it at the back with tape. Attach the other string too as shown.
STEP 9: Carefully poke a hole in the food container to make room for inserting a straw. The food can be consumed through the straw.
STEP 10: Let's make a stable base for our container. You can use the popsicle stick! Invert the cup and put the stick on it like this.
STEP 11: Let's lock our model onto the base. See if it fits in properly, adjust the strings if need be.
Voila Astronaut, feast!
Watch a few astronautsin space!
