How does our (mastermind) one-way door connect to the human body some might ask…? Well, the lower esophageal sphincter is a muscle in our body that lets the food in but doesn’t let it come back out. This connects back to our (mastermind) door because anything can go through, but there is no handle on the other side and it can’t open.
Some would wonder how did we come up with our door idea (don’t forget that we are masterminds)…? Well, we first brainstormed (some great ideas came up). First, we carved the door in cardboard. Second, we put cardboard strips on one side of the door so it won’t open from the other side. Third, we tried to make the door close after being open by adding another piece of cardboard on the connection between the door and the frame but the attempt failed. Fourth, we added rubber at some critical connection points and taped the final (mastermind) product to the table and then… BOOM, SCIENCE.
Many would ask themselves if there were steps to this amazing design or if we had challenges. Some might even ask if we had to fix our design at some points in time. The answer is yes. Even though we are masterminds we needed to constantly fix and change our design. We found success in finding out to make this door a one way but we walked straight into a brick wall in trying to find how to make the door shut when food wasn’t going through. With constant thought, we found a way and this is just one of the times when we had to add or change things in our amazing design.
