Christmas Egg Drop Challenge

Added: 06 Dec 2016 Contributor: Aoife McDonnell Resource type: Guide/notes / Reference

A clever blog post with resources provided on the website. Resources include egg drop challenge planning worksheet and the egg drop challenge recording sheet. To make the task more challenging limit the materials allowed by students. Ensure time is given for evaluating the scientific design, the science behind the design and adjustment of the design to cater for recommendations.
