Science New

Hi Students and Families,

Students have been working very hard using the engineering design process to design a drop package that will safely transport two eggs.  They have investigated what others have done using chrome books to conduct their research.  They have also conducted some tests on hard casing (the outside package), soft padding (the filling to protect packages), and parachute design.  Students have imagined different designs and shared them in teams to develop one design to use.

Tomorrow students will be creating their drop package.  While I have some materials, it would be greatly appreciated if students could also bring some materials from home.  Tape (scotch, masking, duct) and soft padding (bubble wrap, cotton balls, etc) are common items the students use.  If you have any extra you would like to donate, that would be very helpful.  Thank you!
