Creative Engineering Students: Egg Drop

Skyline STEM students started the school year off with a mini design challenge.  They attempted to drop a raw egg from two stories high without breaking it.  The purpose of the challenge was to investigate the delivery of "fragile items" to earthquake victims via airdropping using limited supplies.  Teams brainstormed and came up with unique solutions to the problem.  After constructing their devices, students were very excited for testing day.  From paper parachutes to popsicle stick cases and balloon wings, success was accomplished in a variety of ways.  These sophomores will use what they learned from this project for the remainder of the fall semester as they tackle projects in Structural Design and Robotics.
