Grades 3-5 Space Suit Challenge
NASA is always working to make space suits better and safer for astronauts! Their suits must keep them safe from debris and space dust. Your task is to design a protective layer for a space suit. The layer should protect an "astronaut" (represented by an object such as a marshmallow, inflated balloon, potato, or something similar) from "space dust and debris" (represented by rocks, gravel, sand, nails, or similar items).
Criteria: Your protective layer should not break when about 2 cups of debris is dropped on it. Your layer can be punctured, as long as the astronaut stays unharmed.
Challenge: make your protective layer out of 5 materials or less.
