    The most egg-citing STEM Challenges ever! It’s all about dropping eggs! Kids absolutely love any STEM challenge that involves dropping something- especially if that object is likely to break- like an egg. This trio of challenges all uses an egg in the final dropping event and it is spectacular!

    Please note: This package contains three lessons. Each may be purchased separately.

    What are the challenges?

    Students will be 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!

    Students will use the simplest of supplies - just newspapers or plain 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?

    Students will be working to design and build a parachute that will safely land fragile cargo. Not only will they need to make the parachute, but 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 devices all land safely?

    What is your prep?

    You will need additional materials for these challenges.

    • For Amusement Park Rides you will need 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!

    • For Egg Towers you will need newspaper, masking tape, plastic eggs or small containers, pennies, and real eggs.

    • For Egg Parachutes you will need 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.

    For each package you will receive:

    • a lesson guide that provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a great experience
    • Helpful Hints embedded in the teacher's guides with ideas of specific things to think about while using this package
    • lab sheets
    • sample answer sheets from students
    • photos to help in your use of the challenges
    • And there is more! Each challenge includes a scoring rubric and all forms are provided in an editable format.
