The 8th graders learned Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion and watched a video on the physics behind car crashes. They then used the engineering design process to design a seat belt that would keep an egg from getting injured in a high speed collision with a wall. They all used the same materials to strap the raw egg into a shuttle that was then sent down a zipline and stopped by a wall. If they student’s eggs broke, they got a chance to redesign and try again.
