In this activity, students apply the principles of physics and engineering by designing and testing a container to protect an egg that is dropped from a given height. Mathematical principles may also be incorporated in calculating the efficiency of the unit. Kit includes: cardstock, craft sticks, balsa wood strips, high-density foam, bubble wrap, graph paper, isometric paper and instruction guide. Eggs not included.
This product is part of KELVIN®'s Engineering Principles Series(TM). This series is comprised of a group of activities that focus on one or more engineering or scientific principles. Products are made from light, rigid cardstock, or a combination of cardstock and other hardware, such a gears, motors and wheels. In assembling the kits, children learn about the basics of working with paper (cutting, bending, paper strength and fastening) as well as the engineering principle associated with the product. This series offers a range of learning experiences for a range of students.
