Spring STEM: Egg Drop Challenge
Spring has finally arrived! One of my favorite things about spring is the return of warmer weather which as teachers we all know what that means...the return of outdoor recess! I am doing a little happy dance in my head just thinking about it.
The warmer weather also provides opportunities to get outside with your students for some hands-on learning experiences.
Why not take advantage of the warmer weather by having your class complete a spring themed STEM challenge?!
One of my favorite spring STEM activities is the egg drop challenge. For this challenge, students must design a device to protect an egg from cracking or breaking when dropped.
What I love most about this challenge is the creativity and problem solving that students must use in order to complete the challenge. Pairing up students or having them work in groups also provides opportunities to work on communication skills and teamwork.
