7th Grade Egg Drop

Seventh graders recently worked with partners on the annual egg drop project. The students were challenged to create and build a “crate” and a parachute to house and protect a raw egg during a drop from the third floor of the junior high. The purpose of this project was to apply understanding of Newton’s Laws of Motion as well as an understanding of how forces react upon impact. Students previously completed a crash test dummies lab in which they learned about crumple zones for absorbing force and seatbelts and/or airbags for controlling inertia. Successful groups applied these science concepts, engineering practices, and design skills.
