classic egg challenge

when you come to homeschool day at the navy museum
you get access to a small collection of experiments & projects
within an area of study.

this past december,
signGirl decided to do the classic egg challenge with a twist:
design something using either
all pipe cleaners
or all paper
that will protect an egg if dropped from 50 feet (or so).

this was signGirl’s creation.

her egg ended up like humpty dumpty…

but, it’s the problem-solving design process that matters most.
i’m sure we’ll encounter this challenge again.
