Big Idea:Galileo discovered the concept of pendulums by observing the swinging of lamps at a cathedral in Pisa. He used these observations to create experiments with pendulums and to describe them in mathematical terms
Big Idea:Using the Science and Engineering processes, students will research and design the best way to drop a raw egg. They will design a container to hold the egg that will prevent the egg from breaking.
Big Idea:Part of the engineering process is to identify and correct failure points to improve the design. Students will test out a prototype and then make adjustments to it depending on how the capsule performs in the drop test.
