6th Class, Room 5 Egg Drop Challenge

This week Sixth Class had to put their engineering caps on and complete the EGG DROP CHALLENGE!!

The objective was to design a landing craft that would protect an egg from cracking or breaking from a high fall. Each student had to design, build and test their landing craft for homework. They made them using a variety of materials, such as, show boxes, pillows, plastic bags and popcorn.  Many students also made parachutes and wings to help their landing craft.

We had great fun testing them and checking to see whether our eggs ‘survived’ the drop. In the end, we only broke three eggs!

Have a look at some of our EGG-CELLENT landing crafts!
