— Physics of Motion: Egg-Drop Science Project

Egg Drop Science Project Experiential LearningThe Eight Graders concluded their unit on the physics of motion with an egg-drop project. Working in teams, the students worked to create boxes that would keep an egg intact through a fall onto a hard surface.

Egg Drop Science Project Experiential LearningThey designed, created and tested different arrangements fashioned out of a variety materials over successively higher drops. At the same time, they worked on calculations based on work earlier in the unit to determine the velocity, acceleration, and forces acting on the box and the egg.

Egg Drop Science Project Experiential LearningOn the final day, the Eighth Grade moved to the gym, where Mr. Geller was kind enough to operate the lift to drop egg boxes from greater and greater heights until there was only one unbroken egg remaining.

Congratulations to India Polacek, Mikalee Mauricio, and Marco Yaque, as well as to Jakob Gates, Oscar Hernandez and Matthew Spink. These two teams designed boxes that survived a 6-meter drop!

Egg Drop Science Project Experiential LearningSpecial congratulations to the egg-drop champions: Beech Basler and Conor O’Quigley, who created a box that kept the egg unbroken through the highest drop – 8 meters!
