Choose your design team of 2-4, teacher will decide and a construction inspector (leader) You will be given 5 minutes planning time to discuss and design your craft. You will be given a Purchase Card After planning time your team will be called to the shop to purchase your items. You will be given 20 minutes of construction time
At the end of your construction time, launching will commence at the designated launching pad (outside). Each team will be called up one at a time to the Launch Pad. The winning craft is the pilot that makes a safe landing (no damage or fine crack)
Designing Your designing time is 5mins During this time you need to consider the following: –Money –Time –Safety features of your pilot
Creating Your creating time is 10mins During this time you need to consider the following: –Your pilot needs to be inside the capsule –All materials must be used
You now need to select one group member, from your group to come and discuss your capsule. This would include: –How you made it eg: the materials that you used, and why? –Pilots name? –What you think will happen (hypothesis)?
Launching Time Now for the real test………… Colin will now individually, one at a time, perform the “Worlds Greatest Egg Drop.”
Evaluation As a group you now need to get back together and discus the results of your drop… When doing this you need to consider: What happened? Why it happened (reflect on design)? How would you change it and why?
