Egg Drop Challenge! - Science Room News

Students have been very busy designing and building a container that will protect a raw egg from a 36 ft. fall from the auditorium catwalk.  Having the egg survive does not necessarily ensure the top score, however!  Students will be judged by several faculty members and administrators on 5 factors: egg survival, creative and purposeful design, weight of the container, whether it falls in the intended spot and removal of the egg after the fall.  This year, the designs are truly unique.  Students are using parachutes, rubber bands, natural materials, stuffed animals, foam, cotton, balloons and much more to create their containers.  Watch for the results of this exciting project at Science Night in April!
