Suitable for: KS2
Student number: up to 30
Workshop length: 1 – 1.5 hours
A new twist on a classic workshop – can your students use the materials provided to safely land and egg dropped from a height? Which team can do it using the least resources? Will they opt for an air bag approach or parachute their egg to safety? Can they budget their resources effectively? Will they design, test and refine their contraption within the timescale?
This fun and extremely popular workshop builds communication and team working skills and acts as an introduction to engineering. Students are asked to consider the engineering behind the devices ranging from Mars rovers to car bumbers to food packaging as inspiration for their egg landers.
STEMworks will provide all resources required for this workshop.
