Help students explore gravitational forces through this hands-on engineering challenge.
Students can complete this project individually, in pairs, or in teams. We have done this project with materials in class and also as an at-home project. Both work great!
The mission is to create a lunar lander that will protect the cargo onboard (an egg) and keep it crack-free. Students will put their lander through numerous trials (recording sheets included) as well as spend time reflecting and addressing the NGSS standard.
This project is a always a HUGE hit and your students will love it!
