PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: Are you looking for an activity that has easy prep, easy materials, and will produce amazing problem solving for your students? This challenge will do all that! Teachers need something that can be grabbed and ready to go quickly. So, here’s a new challenge features straws as one of the main materials! This package is easy to assemble, but you will need to plan ahead and have some eggs on hand!

Note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!

In this challenge, students will use straws, tape, some cushioning materials, and some creative thinking to make a very simple egg drop device. This will not be a drop made from a high place, but only from a 3 foot height. Students will still have to be very clever in the design since the egg cannot pop out or hit the floor too hard. We want those eggs to survive even if it is a little fall. This is a great little variation of an egg drop that can be completed in one class session!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Straws
• Plastic eggs (optional)
• Weights
• Masking tape
• Tissue paper
• Eggs
• Bubble wrap

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 4 pages of teacher directions, 4 pages of photographs, 1 extra Hints page, 1 lab sheets for student use, Task constraints with a data recording chart, and a Terms of Use page. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions (1hour) to complete.
