Fourth Grade Egg Drop: Physics, Materials Science, and Aerodynamics!

September 30, 2018

Fourth Grade Scientists provided some exciting observational learning moments for their K-5 student audience, during their annual EGG DROP event!

After researching, resourcing, and designing their egg containers, Fourth graders explored basic concepts, such as gravity, force and acceleration while dropping their eggs from the top floor of the school. 

Predicitons were made, success was achieved, and LOTS of learning took place! Students who were not directly involved in this experiment were still engaged through the sights and sounds of this exciting activity.
