Eggy's 50ft Drop
Choosing How To Solve The Problem
Me and my partner solved are contraption by testing it out by standing on a table about 5ft up in the air and dropping are egg Eggy and seeing what we needed to do to make it better than it was before. We also improved a lot by adding onto the egg each time to are contraption.
How To See If Our Design Would Work
My group used a plastic egg and filled it up with marbles and than dropped it from the 5ft table to test it out to see if the plastic egg would crack. After we had to problem solve how we could make are contraption better by using more materials Mr. Landers gave us.
Adjustments We Made To Are Contraption
We made a lot of adjustments to are contraption to make it more useful for the 50ft drop from a fire truck. First we added a zip lock bag at the top of it like a parachute to catch some air so it wouldn't go as fast. Second we made a egg holder with cotton balls inside of it so when It drops it protects are egg Eggy from breaking. Also we made two big squares in the card board to make the zip lock bag catch the air.
