STEM Saturday–Egg Drop Challenge

Standard

eggsOn September 20 we had another STEM Saturday Family Workshop.  This time we presented an Egg Drop Challenge!  Families came to design and construct containers to protect their egg from a fall.  I put out materials like bubble wrap, styrofoam, cardboard, plastic bags, yarn, and tape and gave the families about 45 minutes to build.  Then, they had an additional five minutes to secure their egg into the container.  Finally, we went outside and I dropped each one from the ladder.  It was a lot of fun!  Go here to see a slideshow.
