This is a photo taken by one of my students during an egg drop. Each student created an eggdrop parachute “contraption” that I dropped off the roof of our bus loop walkway. Students carried out tasks such as timer, observer, photographer, etc. as part of the trial. Later, we calculated the speeds of the drops and I awarded a “golden parachute” award to the student with the slowest time and an intact egg. I like to tease my students about how many teachers will get on the roof for them?
