    Looking for an engaging way for your students to solidify and apply their knowledge of Newton's Laws of Motion? In this exciting design challenge, students will demonstrate their understanding of Newton's Third Law by designing and building a car that can protect an egg during a car crash.

    This project is designed for middle school physical science students. Students should have some background knowledge on Newton's Laws and balanced and unbalanced forces. The assignment will help your students demonstrate mastery of the Next Generation Science Standards, including MS-PS2-1 and MS-ETS1-1.

    This product includes digital and printable versions of the following:

    ♦ Detailed teacher notes

    ♦ Student project packet

    ♦ Embedded links to quality background research video clips

    ♦ Slideshow to enhance project facilitation

    ♦ Easy-to-use grading rubric

    ♦ Printable certificate for student engineers

    Materials needed for the class:

    ♦ A dozen raw eggs for testing

    ♦ Disinfectant for any possible egg messes

    ♦ An inclined plane for testing, such as a folding table with one set of legs collapsed

    Materials needed for each group:

    ♦ Copies of the student project packet

    ♦ A set of building supplies (e.g., plastic wheels or life savers, bamboo skewers, straws, small cups, rubber bands, wooden craft sticks, etc.)

    Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle. Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
    Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
