Avalanche life saver
The Big Idea
Create an invention to save the life of someone caught in an avalanche.
Avalanches are terrible hazards for many people each year. Survival is dependent on getting rescue teams to the site of the injured person but, often the person can survive a few hours buried in ice. The person may be crushed or unable to breathe inside a mountain of ice. What if skiers or snowboarders or hikers could be protected by something they use to protect themselves in an event of avalanche!
Invention has to provide protection for 1 person and they have to be able to carry it easily as other things normally in a backpack. How does the invention protect the life of someone under the ice?
