An Eggsellent Eggsperiment in the STEAM room

Wow , what fun we had today with Trish in the STEAM room. We have been learning about our brain and how it is protected by our skull and the fluid between the brain and the skull. We had a challenge to design a protective cover for an egg (which was representing us. The yolk was our brain and the egg white was the fluid surrounding the brain and the shell was our skull), using only certain materials we needed to design something that could protect our egg when dropped at a certain height. We found all our eggsellent designs failed, as our poor little eggies cracked when they were dropped.

All eggscept one. Bella and Ella’s protective egg helmet withstood the drop test and their egg is still intact. Well done girls!!
