Goal posts for each team will be set up. The distance between
the posts will be determined by the judges.
The balloons are the air moving devices. They may be altered (for
example, have things attached to it) as long as only the materials
supplied are utilized.
Students have half an hour to create their air devices.
Students may stand or sit around the table.
