I am very egg-cited to talk about my favorite activity this week! (ha!)
Your students worked individually to design a contraption to protect an egg that they dropped from approximately 10 feet and then 20 feet in the air!
I presented our builders with the supplies, and they did the rest! It was great to watch their thought processes and see their inventions come to life! Check out some the photos from the building process!
We were able to use the outdoor staircases for this activity, which provided us with two levels to drop our eggs from. About half of the eggs survived the first drop, as for the other half, they made it quite messy and difficult to find a place to grab and move the tarp.
Two contraptions survived the second drop, belonging to Varnon and Baden.
After one drop from 20 feet, Varnon's egg was slightly cracked but not leaking (which was impressive because he wasn't with us for the first 45 minutes of building!)
Baden was the ultimate winner because his egg was completely intact, and he began tearing apart the protection to try and get his egg to crack.
In other !MPACT news, your students have become very interested in these reusable field trip bracelets that we no longer use, so if you notice multiple of them around your house we apologize!
Thomas, along with many other students, have enjoyed covering both of his arms entirely with them, which is hilarious!
