Our EMS STEM students, in Mr. Poehner's class, had a great time testing their Egg Drop Devices that they designed and built. Students were challenged to create a parachute container using no more than 10 pieces of paper and 3 feet (or less) of tape. The goal was to design and build a container that would protect a raw egg when dropped from over 25 feet. After they had a chance to test their design, they discussed how gravity and impact influenced their design. Several of the designs were successful! It was definitely, a fun way to test our students creative design capabilities and engineering skills.
