In Science Club this week we had great fun with our 'Egg Drop' experiment! Our challenge was to investigate which materials would be best for protecting an egg when it was dropped from a height.
The children got to choose their own materials to experiment with, which included cotton wool, water, balloons, straws, cardboard, newspaper and fabric. Some of the materials were successful in preventing the egg from cracking but others unfortunately were not! After making our predictions, carrying out our test and then drawing up our findings, we concluded that cotton wool made for the best protective material.
Well done to the children, they were 'eggcellent' scientists today!
