PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: It’s an Egg Drop Task! Your students are going to love this!

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

It’s the ultimate challenge! Can you protect a fragile egg? This STEM challenge will have your students working as Amusement Park Engineers. Their task is to design and build a model of an amusement park ride. They will test the ride in several ways before presenting the final version to the whole class! In the presentation students will have the additional challenge of using a real egg with their ride model. Can they make a braking system? Will the ride protect its passengers? Will the egg withstand the fall? All fantastic questions to answer in this very engaging challenge. It’s a fantastic opportunity for collaborative work and constant re-designing!

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 3 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 4 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.

Supplies needed in addition to this package include: broomsticks or PVC pipe, paper or foam cups, binder clips, straws, ping pong balls, pennies – to use as weights, zip lock bags, eggs, card stock and regular copy paper, masking tape, and string. Of course, substitutions can be made for any of these!
