Space Egg-speriments


Bringing their space topic to a close and kicking off next term’s forces topic, 5AB designed, built and tested interplanetary landers. Our mission… to boldly design a system that would safely protect an egg dropped from near the ceiling! Starting with exactly the same set of materials in each group, we created parachutes, crumple zones and shock absorbing designs. In the end, all the different engineering designs were successful (although we sadly lost one egg on the launch pad.)
