Engineering Challenge: Week 5 Parachute Challenge


The Parachute Challenge!

I supplied the kids with cups, yarn, tape, plastic bags, scissors, and a hole puncher.

Their challenge was build a parachute that could safely transport objects down from a 12 foot drop.


They got busy building and testing their parachutes out with coins.


Then they were ready for the big test — a long drop with raw eggs.


Our Results?

I’m happy to report all eggs survived the drop!
