Raining Forest

RelevanceScientists have noticed that temperatures are rising. This is called global warming. Rising temperatures are causing polar ice caps to melt. If the polar ice caps melt, there will be nowhere for the polar bears to live. The sea level will rise as the polar ice caps melt. People in coastal areas will have to abandon their houses and farms. We need to think of ideas to stop global warming, and machines that can help against global warming. But the machines may take a long time to work. So we need to start now before global warming gets ahead of us. Trees take in carbon dioxide. Now people are cutting down all the trees and planting by hand is too slow to reforest all the deforested areas. Raining Forest is a fast way to plant over a big area.

Describe Your Project Earth MachineRaining forest is a helicopter that drops wax packages with fertilizer, moist dirt, and a seed inside. The wax packages land on the ground and shatter. Then the seed grows in the dirt from the package. The roots go into the ground as it grows. The packages are dropped from a net hanging from a helicopter. They are dropped all together while the helicopter is moving slowly at a high altitude. On the way down they spread out so they can grow like a forest.

Design BriefProblem- Trees help against global warming but many trees are being chopped down very quickly. Planting trees helps but planting trees over big areas is a very slow process.Solution- Planting trees quickly by dropping a lot of seeds inside of aerodynamic canisters from helicopters on a barren area can grow many trees.

Design Specifications1. Seed: Needed so when the canister lands a tree will grow.2. Red Ribbon: Needed so when the canister is falling it lands the correct way.3. Dirt: Needed so when the canister lands it has something to grow in.4. Wax Canister: Needed so when the seed and dirt is dropped the soil stays moist and everything stays together.5. Fertilizer: Needed so plants will grow better.6. Helicopter: Needed so your can drop the canisters from up high so they are spread out.7. Whole machine: Needed to reforest deforested places.

Hypothetical Test1. Seed: Test if the seed can turn into a tree if it is inside a shattered canister on the ground. Put some seeds in shattered canisters and put them on the ground. If enough turn into trees it passes the test and will be used in the canister. 2. Red Ribbon: Test if the red ribbon makes the canister fall the correct way. Tie some red ribbons to canisters and drop them from a helicopter. If enough of them land the right way then the red ribbons will pass the test and be tied to the canisters.3. Dirt: Test how many seeds out of a number of seeds grow in different kinds of dirt. Then test to see which one grows faster. The faster and more productive soil will be put in the canisters.4. Wax canisters: Test if the wax can keep the soil damp and keep the canister from falling apart. The wax will be dropped from a helicopter. The wax that does not break in the air or when it hits the ground will pass the test and be used for the canister.5. Fertilizer: Test if the fertilizer makes the plant grow bigger and faster. Make sample canisters with different kinds of fertilizer and without fertilizer. Then which ever one grows the fastest and biggest will pass the test and be put in the canister.6. Helicopter: Test what the best technique is for getting the canisters spread out over an area. Drop the canisters from a helicopter while moving at different speeds and dropping from different heights. The speed and height that make the canisters most spread out will pass the test and be the technique used. 7. Whole Machine: Test to see if the idea works. Drop the best canister, dirt, fertilizer, wax, at the best height and speed. Then come back later and see if the seeds have grown. If they have grown, the machine works. If they don't, then the machine fails.
