The great Year 4 Egg Drop
This week our Year 4 students conducted an egg drop experiment and it was a complete hit!
Using their knowledge of competing forces, including gravity and air resistance, their task was to use a range of materials to build a safe house (with parachute) for their egg. They then dropped their eggs from a height. Could they protect their precious eggs from breaking?
An ‘eggcellent’ outcome: Thanks to their resourcefulness, the application of their learning and strong collaboration, almost all their eggs survived the great balcony fall.
1. Habits of Mind – thinking with wonderment and awe
2. Creativity – form and function
3. Teamwork and thinking interdependently
4. Learning from mistakes
The students found this experiment to be ‘eggstraordinarily’ fun! Well done Year 4!
