Middle School Programs

Granite Falls Middle School

Students worked with mentors to complete The Egg Drop project. This is a highly-versatile activity that can be used to introduce students to physics, materials science, and fluid dynamics.  For our classes, the budget and number of available materials are reduced, making the challenge more difficult and emphasizing the engineering design process. Additional components to the activity include timing the falls to calculate the average speed, measuring the deformations of the devices after the drop, and data analysis to compare which materials worked best overall.
