Egg Drop Project


Supplies needed:

Small paper cups
Popsicle sticks
Rubber bands
Newspaper (for floor)
Raw egg (supplied by school teacher)


The classic egg drop experiment where student's try and protect a raw egg when dropped from a significant height. Student's should think about creating a design which would reduce the amount of deceleration upon impact via air drag techniques and/or cushioning.

Per group: 2 balloons, 2 dixie cups, 4 straws, one sheet of cellophane (approx. 1 square foot), 4 rubber bands, 4 popsicle sticks, tape, 1 egg.
