Egg Drop Project
WHO WILL BUILD THE LIGHTEST PROJECT AND STILL SURVIVE?
Objective: This is an individual project to be done at home.
You are to make or build something that is the lightest possible
weight, and yet durable enough to protect an egg thrown off the
swimming pool roof so that the egg doesn't break from the fall.
Think of the egg as a passenger in a car going through a crash
A - Egg survives the fall fully intact
B - Egg is cracked, but intact
C - Egg is broken
E - Project is not done or disqualified
- Of course the egg and its contraption must hit the ground!
I will be doing the throwing, and I'll throw them anyway I want!
- No balloons or parachutes are allowed.
- The egg and the project must weigh less than 200 grams. (
the average egg weighs 50 grams)
- Only raw, store bought chicken eggs; size medium or larger
may be used. You may NOT soak the egg in vinegar.
- Your egg project must fit on a regular size sheet of paper.
(note that it may be 3 ft high and still fit on the paper)
- Your egg project must have an opening the size of my pinky
finger where i can see a portion of the egg.
- You may not use nerf balls, pillows, or stuffed animals to
protect your egg.
- You may bring in your project early to weigh it - if your
project is overweight you may take it home and make any neccesary
alterations. If you wait until the last minute and your project
is overweight, it will be disqualified.
- Once a project is in school it may not be touched by anyone
other than its owner. Please have your name and class period
written on it.
- Once a project has hit the ground it will your responsibility
to retrieve your egg and show it to the score keeper for scoring.
