Egg Challenge

What is the the Egg Drop Project?

Not sure what this popular STEM activity is? In the egg drop project, children are challenged to create a contraption using various materials (usually recyclables) to protect a raw egg from a high fall. This physics activity is very common and lots of fun.

We challenge you to build a contraption from anything you have at home to protect an egg from a fall from height. Mrs Wright dropped her eggs out of the bedroom window. You can search the internet for ideas or better yet, invent your own. We would love to see what you make so if you have a go, please upload your pictures to Tapestry for us.
