Oh yes! Just one good day! Today is the day when our Physics Teacher, Mr. Ronald Arcilla assigned each group an Egg Drop Project. It was to be tested on Tuesday and performed on Wedenesday. The stakes were pretty high considering the reward for the winners: One perfect experiment which costs 10% in the average grade and two perfect quizzes.
The Egg Drop Experiment has been performed by students all over the globe. It has been a standard in science instruction for many years. Essentially, students are asked to construct some type of container that will keep a raw egg from cracking when dropped from ever-increasing elevations. But with some further thought, this activity can be both engaging and completely in accordance with the National Science Education Standards developed by the National Research Council in 1995.
Well, these plainly are the rules:
1. The main objective of the experiment is to drop a package containing 6 eggs from the Maceda Building Bridge which is three storeys high without breaking the eggs.
2. The winner will be based on the most number of surviving eggs.
3. If ever there is a tie, the group with the lightest package wins.
4. No apparatus may be attached to the box.
5. Fluids may not be used.
So given a short five minute group talk, our group plans our design. Our original design was to place foam inside a box, and put bubble wrap around the egg. Our group also wanted to put divisions in the box in order to prevent the eggs from hitting each other.
See figure 1.1
This WAS our group's original plan
When dismissal time came, we assigned each member the materials to bring for tomorrow's test drop.
Maricar Lerin was assigned to bring the foam. Leslie was assigned to bring the box/ shoe box, Chrissy was assigned to bring the bubble wrap, Nialyn and Jonas were tasked to bring ice bags and Maricar Ricardos was assigned to bring the cardboard for divisions.
We were all assigned by Mr. Arcilla to research some ideas for the Egg Drop Experiment. He gave us some sites on the Physics group:Mechanics_masci
