Human Body Eggsperiment: Protect That Brain!

Our last brain-related activity was to design a helmet that would protect our egg pilot in a fall. The shell, I told them, was his skull; the egg white and yolk was his brain. Then I left the kids to it!

LD designed a balloon-encased egg protector. 

 
 

DD designed a construction paper protective cloak:

Mom designed a cotton ball-play dough helmet:

I took the photo before covering it entirely.

Then it was time for the big drop:

 

We checked to see which egg pilots survived.


DD’s made it through unscathed:

Mom’s design was a bust:

LD’s egg pilot survived and lived to see another fall (and another and another!)

    Looks like fun. We used to do this when I taught a summer science camp :)

    I absolutely love it. This is the best brain involving activity that I have seen so far. Can't wait to do it with my little scientist. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.Warm hugsEwa
