This classic contest combines fun with science and engineering using common materials. Students work alone or in teams.
This product includes my description of how my students dropped eggs AND
a web page with links to more options that make it easy for you can tailor the activity to your students.
: Have students practice creating a container that protects the raw egg just like scientists at NASA protected the Spirit rover we sent to Mars. Use images, a presentation, or three videos of NASA scientists explaining their project. For many students this makes their task a bit more real.

⁂ A description
of the activity with options
⁂ A student worksheet
for recording the plan and results
⁂ Adapt a Word™ document of the worksheet for your students
⁂ Two videos
that show how to spin an egg to determine if it's raw or cooked
