THE CGA MOSAIC TIMES
So hard you may "crack" under the pressure
Try not not to let this challenge scramble your brain! In the summer MOSAIC class Egg Drop students are challenged to make a contraption that protects their egg from a dizzy drop. The students are to make 2 contraptions. One that lets you use limited items and one that you can use any item, but the egg has to be exposed.
THE EGG DROP CLASS SMILES
Riya said she made a box for the egg to sit in and then made a parachute on top. Just like a hot air balloon. Its so it floats down nicely.
I sat down with the teacher for the class, Nick Coenraad, and asked him a few questions.
Deepika: How is this environment different from the science class you teach.
Mr. Coenraad: Not very different because they get to have a lot of hand on thinking, and building.
Deepika: What is the point of this?Mr. Coenraad: The point is to understand some different physics concepts, and being able to put those concepts into use and apply what they know into building something.
ALL OF THE EGGS BROKE! Except one happy group's. Vittore and Vedin were excited when their egg was the only one that survived. Congrats Vedin and Vittore! :)
