This problem solving engineering activity uses the design process to help students understand the physics of gravity, power, motion, inertia and impact. This activity can be completed by individual, partners or groups of students. You can use this as a classroom STEM activity or competition. You could also create an Egg Drop Contest for your elementary school science night or to create some excitement on a middle school parent night. The following materials are necessary for each student: wooden craft sticks, straws, empty ½ pint milk cartons, string, tape, plastic grocery bag. The students are asked to design and build a device that will land with their egg safely inside. The objects are to be dropped from at least a height of 12 feet. The activity sheet headings include: Teacher Notes, Introduction, Equipment, Procedures, Design and Conclusion. Lots of fun!
