Grade 7 Egg Drop

Students in Grade 7 Science Class were having fun all week dropping eggs in the Atrium! 

The students designed and created a container that would house a raw egg and protect it from any impacts.
Students applied what they had learned about various structure and design concepts such as load bearing forces, tensile strength, compression and tension to create their apparatus. They then tested it by dropping it from the second floor to the atrium and see if it would protect the egg from the impact!
