Parachute Straw Egg Drop

Each pair of students will make a device out of paper straws and masking tape, supplied on‐site by the event supervisor, to hold a large raw egg. The device containing the egg will be dropped from a fixed height to a target. This event has a written test on the possible topics of eggs, parts of a parachute, and related vocabulary.
