Can We Defy Gravity with Latex-Free Tubing?

It was a challenge at first to figure out a way to defy gravity for this monstrously huge ball, but we have a design that will hopefully achieve the anticipated result. The design team engineered a method to launch it with latex-free tubing, using a slingshot method. Since we have a team member who is allergic to latex, the design team is being  forced to test their collective ingenuity to utilize a similar material that would not take a valued team member out of commission.After some trial and error, the material is proving to be difficult. Stayed tuned for an update for the out come for this challenge.

The programming team “ironed out some code” according to our Vice-President, Matt, which allows the compressors and solenoids to work.
