PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: It’s the Ultimate Egg Drop! A favorite for kids- using eggs and Parachutes!

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

This STEM activity will have your students working to design and build a parachute that will safely land fragile cargo. Not only will they need to make the parachute, they will also create a container in which to store the cargo. The cargo, of course, is an egg! Can they create the best parachute canopy? Will their egg container protect the egg? Will the device all land safely?

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 3 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 1 page of Extension Ideas, 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.

In addition to this package you will need items for making parachutes and egg containers. Suggested items include: packing peanuts, cotton balls, bubble wrap, copy paper, straws, masking tape, foil, card stock paper, paper clips, cups (Styrofoam, plastic, paper), cardboard tubes, pipe cleaners, tissue paper, craft sticks, clay or play dough, newspaper, shopping bags, coffee filters, and string. Any of these items can be changed as needed.
