Easter STEM Challenge: Egg-hanced

Q: How can you protect an egg from a terrible drop?

A: With an egg-hancement, of course!

In this classic egg drop STEM Challenge, students design a device to protect an egg from breaking when it falls.  You may choose to use real eggs or plastic.

You can take this idea and run with it on your own, or you can find more support in the prepared lesson challenge or in the Easter STEM Olympics blog:

  • Materials List
  • Criteria & Constraints List
  • Discussion questions
  • Design analysis handouts
  • Modifications to increase/decrease difficulty for grades 2 - 8
  • Post-design extension ideas
