The Great Egg Drop – A Design Challenge

25 May

No not like this!


The children had to use various items to create a protective capsule for their egg.


There were lots of different ideas and no two were alike.


Then the children had to throw them over the verandah to test the effectiveness of their egg capsules.


Only three little eggsters survived.   😦

Three more than I expected though.

Back to the design board for the rest.

Hmmm…perhaps a parachute to slow their descent….

    Great experiment. My ds would like this one. The challenge here though is to find a balcony. He’d have to climb a tree…hmmm…he’d like it even better now lol!
