Gold Medal STEM: Egghead
Did the egg crack? Ask your students and find out how their group did! Today in class the students worked on making a helmet for an egg, so when the egg was dropped it would not crack. Students used plastic spoons, Styrofoam cups, and flexible cardboard as the harder surfaces, while others used bubble wrap cotton materials, and moldable fiberglass. Some trials were definitely messier than others, but it was all for science!
Ask your students:
Did their egg crack?
What materials did you use?
How did you pick those materials?
