Bubble wrap, sponges, cups, balloons and cotton balls were just a few of the items fifth-grade students in district’s summer enrichment program used to protect their shells as they participated in the egg drop challenge on July 28.

As part of the challenge, the students were tasked with designing protective devices to keep their eggs from cracking when they were tossed off the Deauville Gardens East roof. During their time in the summer program, the fifth-graders learned about Newton’s laws of motion, gravity, velocity, force, shock and after-shock.

Students made predictions about how their eggs would hold up, and they even had a chance to redesign their device if it failed on the first drop.
