PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: It’s another Egg Challenge! This is a variation of an egg drop event!

*** Please note: This lesson is available in a combination package.

We have discovered that adding something as simple as an egg to a challenge makes for an exciting event (or egg-citing!)

This is a tower building challenge in which your students will use the simplest of supplies - just newspaper and tape. The trick is, however, that the tower must bear weight and the weight is a fragile egg. Students will test their towers with an egg model and then end the project by using a real egg! Can they build a tower only using paper? Will the egg survive? Or will the egg drop?

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, a 2-page lab sheet with answer key, a 1-page lab sheet, a Terms of Use page, and a Credits page.

In addition to this package you will need these supplies: newspaper, masking tape, plastic eggs or small containers, pennies, and real eggs.
