Description
Egg Drop Project

STEM: Algebra 2 and Physics
Investigating Newton’s Laws of Motion

Students investigated Newton’s Laws of motion in Physics class. (Science)
Students utilized a notebook computer connected to a Vernier Force Plate sensor to measure impact force and time of fall. (Technology)
Students designed an egg container. The container was dropped from 6 m. The student’s grade was based on survival of the egg (no cracks or breakage) and the least material/weight used for container construction. (Engineering)
Students calculated the time to impact, ignoring air resistance. Students measured time to impact and compared it to calculated value to estimate the effect of air resistance. Students calculated force at impact and compared to measured impact force. (Mathematics)
