Egg Drop Challenge

Students in grades 5-8 used their science learningĀ as well as creative skills to work in pairs on the Egg Drop Challenge. Students were provided with a variety of materials to prepare – straws, popsicle sticks, yarn, balloons, tape, felt and more – but could not use more than 15 items. After a video introduction, the pairs had less than 30 minutes to plan and construct something that safely held the raw egg. Once complete, the groups move to the second floor library where the contraptions were thrown over the wall into the middle school lobby below. Only 5 out of 30 eggs broke – which was a remarkable result. It was a great lesson in science and team building!
