Egg drop challenge

Class 6 have been learning about forces in science this term. This week we were investigating air resistance. The children had to design a parachute to try and land an egg from a height of 2 meters. The children really enjoyed making their parachutes and testing their designs. Some of the eggs survived and made it home for tea but others cracked rather dramatically. The children learnt the importance of air resistance and surface area to slow a falling object down.
