Egg Drop - FamilyEducation

Egg Drop

In this science activity, children will experiment with different ideas for keeping an egg from breaking when dropped out of a window.

Materials

  • Raw egg (and a few extra)
  • Packing materials
  • String or tape
Directions

The object of this activity is to wrap up an egg so that it won't break when dropped from a height. The recommended height is 12-15 feet. Design a container which will protect the egg from breaking. It should be lightweight and sturdy. Most of all, it should withstand sudden impact with the ground.

Note: The Egg Drop is one of the events in the Science Olympics in which many schools participate. This could be your entry.
