In an activity today students tried the ‘egg drop challenge’. Students worked in teams to build something to protect an egg. We then dropped them onto the floor from 2.5 metres and 5 metres. If the egg was not broken the team won many house points. The students tried very hard and everybody was successful!
This team used a lot of newspaper to protect their egg.
The students had very good ideas to protect their eggs.
After the first drop (2.5 metres) we dropped them from the top of the stairs (5 metres).
They used many different things to protect their egg.
The students were excited to see their egg safe.
This team’s egg was okay after a 5 metre drop!
After the drop we cut them open to check the egg inside.
The teams were very proud of their designs.
Some of the designs were really interesting.
The teams supported each other.
After the drop some of the students gave their eggs names.
