Would you like your eggs boiled, scrambled, or dropped 25 feet from the top of the bleachers? On October 6, Mr. McDonals's Physics class began building an egg dropper. The class split into pairs. He gave each pair some supplies: 10 toothpicks, 10 straws, 4 balloons, 1 egg, 1 cup, string, super glue, and tape. They had to make a device to hold they egg securely while falling from the top of the home side bleachers. Although making the device seemed fairly easy, they also had to write a paragraph describing what physic principle applied to their egg dropper. The students not only had fun doing this, it also bettered their understanding of the Physics they have been studying.
