Carolina STEM Challenge®: Egg Drop Kit

Item # 750046 Exclusive

Protect the falling egg! Design teams create a device to absorb force from an initial 1-meter drop. After investigating the strength of 3-D geometric shapes, teams incorporate this knowledge to reduce the energy of impact. Final models compete to achieve the highest drop distance resulting in an intact egg. Explore energy conservation, collision forces, momentum, and Newton’s laws. Materials support 15 design teams. Includes instructions; eggs are needed but not supplied.

Protect the falling egg with engineering, geometry, and physics! Design teams create a device to absorb force and protect an egg from a 1-meter drop (minimum). After investigating the strength of 3-D geometric shapes, teams incorporate this knowledge to reduce the energy of impact. Final models compete to achieve the highest drop distance resulting in an intact egg. Explore energy conservation, collision forces, momentum, and Newton’s laws. Materials support 15 design teams. Includes instructions; eggs are needed but not supplied. Note: We recommend Grade A extra-large chicken eggs. To minimize the risk of exposure to Salmonella, use hardboiled eggs for the drop tests.

This kit does not incorporate parachutes or other mechanisms that slow down the device to minimize impact.
