Great Engineering Egg Drop Challenge

As part of British Science Week (11th-15th March 2019) we invite all of you to take part in the second Great Engineering Egg Drop Challenge! We shall be conducting a whole school experiment to find out which materials and indeed engineered structures you and your child have been able to invent to keep an egg intact when dropped from a great height!


Be as creative as you like but this year I am restricting the materials you can use! You are not permitted to use cable ties, plastic ties or bubble wrap and you may only use a maximum of 3 different materials! Prizes given out for those eggs kept intact after their descent to the ground!


This looks set to be an incredibly fun experience for all and a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to work together collaboratively and scientifically! We welcome any planning boards and posters with your initial ideas and diagrams of your models too! Egg structure ideas can be found online, but we encourage you to be as unique and inventive as possible! We are sure the children can come up with some egg-cellent ideas to test out!


If you would like to take part, please fill in the slip (please click here) by Friday 8th March. All egg structures to be in school by Wednesday 13th March ready for the challenge on Friday 15th March. Good luck!
