• Packaging Challenge
    Egg Drop / Crush / Mail

    The EGG Packaging project is by far the most fun and messy project the students will do during the school year.

    The object of the EGG: DROP/ CRUSH / MAIL is for the students to get into teams of 3 and design a package for 3 eggs. Students will use package design developments to help them figure out what type of box will protect the eggs the best.

    The eggs will be subjected to several different tortures: Drop, Crush, and being sent through the mail.

    Students will create 3 identical boxes, and will come up with a product in which they will decorate their boxes with pictures and colors. The object of the activity is for all 3 eggs to survive all the torture tests. Their boxes are the only thing standing in the way of total smush!
