Gravity: Egg Drop
Submitted by Nikki in Bellingham, Washington
Egg Dropping Contest! - When introducing gravity, I decided to have a bit of fun with it and give my kids a challenge. The objective is to drop an egg from our deck (about 10ft off the ground) to the yard below without breaking the egg. They had to come up with a contraption that would allow the egg to come out unharmed. We broke into teams; My husband and my 8year old daughter on one team and myself and my 5 year old daughter on another. One team made a parachute, the other went with an insulated box- both eggs were unharmed and everybody got to enjoy a night of Ice Cream!
A great experiment for all ages, it sparks their creativity and teaches the fundamentals while having fun!
Webmaster note: Sounds like loads of fun! Thanks, Nikki!
