One of our Game Schooled families has decided to issue an "Easter Weekend Egg Drop!" challenge to give your kids some fun and creative competition for the week ahead. This fantastic S.T.E.M. activity requires the building of a contraption that will protect your egg from breaking when dropped from a second-story window (or from about 10 feet up) onto a solid surface.
And now the rules:
- The egg must be an uncooked
- The contraption can use any type of cardboard, plus up to three other materials (for example, 6 pieces of tape = 1 material).
- All materials should be things you find around your home or yard
Share a photo or video about your contraption on the Game Schooled Facebook page so you can explain your plan and why you think your design will protect your egg. Then make a video of your egg drop and share it by Monday, April 13.
Consider yourselves challenged! Let's see who can earn the status of Eggspert Contraption Designer!"
