Scrambling to Save the Eggs

October 2nd saw a group of eggs (with faces and names) in danger. Students at Holman Middle School were challenged to save them by building a device to help their egg survive a high fall. With only a simple bag of materials and around 30 minutes of preparation, each group made a contraption to test from the top of a two-story indoor balcony. This project is a fun way for students to learn about practical applications of physics knowledge through devices like parachutes and protective packaging.
