Investigate forces experienced by a falling egg through the Engineering Design Process
In these modules, students investigate the forces experienced by an egg as it falls from a specified height. Students research these forces and use their understanding to design a vessel that prevents an egg from cracking upon landing. Each module is structured around the Engineering Design Process.
