Students in Mr. Hughes' 5-6 classroom used the Scientific Method in the design and construction of a device that would enable an egg (inside the device) to drop from an approximate height of ten feet onto a hard surface. Students researched what designs might be best, created a hypothesis, and then Mr. Hughes tested the hypothesis by dropping the devices from the roof of his classroom — a little more rigorously each round. All students watched and were thrilled with the event!
