In this engineering design activity, students will learn about how engineers create safety equipment for sports. They will then complete an engineering design challenge to create a landing pad that will keep an egg from cracking when dropped from 2 meters. This project should take 2 – 3 days.
This activity is number 4 of 5 in a mini engineering unit. It is aligned to
