The Egg Drop is a classic science class experiment for middle school or high school students. Students are given an egg to drop from a high point (such as the roof of the school) onto a hard surface (such as the parking lot). They must design a carrier for the egg to house it during the drop. Typical carriers are milk cartons or shoeboxes.
The egg drop project is one of those science projects that can really fluster kids. But it also really helps them think outside of the box and apply engineering skills. You don’t need much for the egg drop science project, not even a high place to drop from. I’ve done this many times over the years, sometimes we have dropped the eggs from.
