A Tough Egg to Crack

As part of their study of force and inertia, fourth-graders in Mr. Egan’s class at South Bay Elementary School recently participated in a science/engineering challenge. Working collaboratively, the students were tasked with designing, constructing and crash testing a container that can protect a raw egg from cracking when it was dropped from a 2-meter height. Students learned how to work together while testing the flaws in their different designs.
