A certain sponsor from downtown, who wishes to remain anonymous and will go by the name "Mr. PB", is concerned about nuclear war and wants to build a nuclear bomb shelter. However, he doesn't know very much about the subject, which is probably why he has hired a group of high schoolers to design it. His only requirements are that this shelter must be large enough to host at least ten people in "comfortable style", must protect against something called "radiation," and withstand a nuclear blast 5 miles away. It is up to your team to decide how to sell your idea best to Mr. PB, and what other parameters you want to meet (what does "comfortable style" mean? How big a bomb will the shelter account for? Where should the shelter be? How long do people need to live in it? What is the estimated cost of construction?)
While he doesn't know much about the subject, the best-informed approach will definitely have an advantage--he will want to be absolutely sure he and his guests will be safe and comfortable, and will want to see data to support this. You'll have four weeks before your team will need to present their ideas. Each team member will have a different role within your unit, in addition to the general research and design that will need to occur to meet this deadline. Your individual grade will depend on how well you accomplish these responsibilities each day, as well as the overall quality of your final pitch to Mr. PB.
(When you present you must support your claims with cited research. This will require either a presentation with PowerPoint, Prezzi, google presentation or any other presenting mode. The presentation must be linked to your sheet on the front page of your Spreadsheet)
