HELP!!!!Can you save Fred?

Class Discussion :1. How did you accomplish putting the life jacket on Fred?2. What did you and your team member discuss as options in getting thelife jacket on Fred?3. How did you and your team member feel when trying to put the jacket onhim?4. What advice would you give for future students who will perform this lab?

Fred has been spending his summer boating on the great lakes. But he’s not too bright (after all, the brains of worms are pretty small.) He’s never learned how to swim and he never wears his life preserver. The worst has happened! His boat has capsized and he’s stuck! Fortunately, his life preserver is in the boat, but unfortunately he does not know how to reach it without falling off and drowning.

Problem:How can you and your partner save Fred using only paper clips? You may not touch Fred, the boat, or the life preserver directly with your hands.
