Unformatted text preview: In the creation of our solution to bridging the gap, we followed the design process to assure we were effective in our work to best serve the design goal. Our first step was defining our problem, where we looked at the parameters given of an 8 inch gap and limited materials to cross it. After that, our brainstorming process began as we began writing down ideas for what to do with the paper and paper clips, including folding it different ways, tearing it in different places to ease the fold and paper clip placement along the bridge for reinforcement. From those ideas, we narrowed down our options as we noticed some options immediately that would not accomplish either bridging the gap or would destroy the materials to the point of inefficiency. From there, we began analyzing what option was the most economical and logical through determining effort for construction, usage of materials and probable durability. Our next step was determining the pros and cons of the remaining solutions, if they were easy to build but weak or...
