Egg Drop Challenge!

Standard

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.
