Egg Drop Time!

Summer is here, meaning it's egg drop time!  I've posted several times on the Egg Drop Experiment, and one of those posts is the most visited post on this blog.  I recently had a group of 4th-6th graders build egg drop ships (for full details and supplies, check the link above).  Kids at this age are very capable of taking given supplies and building their own ships with minimal help.  Sometimes they need help tying things together or holding something while they apply glue, but they are very capable of doing this without constant adult help.  Here's an example of what our lab tables looked like a couple of weeks ago.

The kids did a great job, with one ship surviving a 4 story fall onto rocks!  So if your kids are bored this summer, try an egg drop!  It will easily take a full afternoon to build and watching them drop is a blast!
