Last week Mr. Bell’s second period class did an egg drop. We started on it February 16. The object of the egg drop was to help us understand what we were learning about gravity and how it holds you to the ground.

Mr. Bell even made something for the egg drop to show us what was supposed to happen. His worked when it was supposed to work, the egg broke.

There were pairs working on it. There was about 11 or 12 groups.  It took us from Friday to Thursday of the falling week to finish this project.

The way that this was set up you had a limit of a hundred dollars to make the thing to hold the egg. Because of the rain we did the egg drop inside the gym, we hung over the railing of the stands and dropped our ends at 10 feet. If our egg didn’t break at that many feet we then went to the next round which we dropped the egg at 15 feet. If your egg didn’t break then you had a done the project right.

It was a lot of hard work to get the egg holders like you wanted. You couldn’t get frustrated at how you didn’t get like you wanted to first time.  If you did get frustrated with it then you gave up on it. I got frustrated and gave up on it and failed the egg drops.

“It was fun and thought provoking,” William Carmichael said.

Courtney Meherg said,” It was scary because I didn’t want to drop my egg.”

“It went pretty well,” Mr. Bell said. There were some creative designs.”
