Zip- a-dee-do-dah

Q:  I’m new to the science olympiad and am wondering about ideas to make the zip line for practice during team meetings. Any ideas? Or do we not need to make the zip line?

A:  A very simple zip line set up should be sufficient for practice. When we were designing the event, we tied the fishing wire to a lamp and a chair. We’ll also have open practice sessions where teams can sign up for time slots and use the actual zip line rig we’ll use for the competition.
