Are you looking for an easy-prep challenge? This one is for you! If you need a challenge that can be used in one class session and at any time of year, this one is perfect. It's also "Egg-citing"! The Egg Tower STEM Activity is one your student will love.

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

What is the challenge?

  • This is a tower-building challenge in which your students will use the simplest of supplies - just newspaper (or brown paper) 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?

What is your prep?

  • The Teacher's guide will walk you through this activity step-by-step. I have thought of everything and included tips from use in my classroom.
  • As a STEM Specialist, I will lead you through making this a successful event for your student.
  • In addition to this package, you will need these supplies: newspaper or heavyweight brown paper, masking tape, plastic eggs or small containers, pennies, and real eggs.
