Materials: eggs cardboard (corrugated works best) toothpicks
As we've done each week- let's start by learning from a great book! Here's one we like!
Ask yourself, can I build a simple device to keep eggs from rolling using just cardboard and toothpicks? For this challenge, you only get 20 toothpicks and a rectangular piece of cardboard (parents, cardboard should be about the same size as an egg carton). Brainstorm ideas for how to keep your egg from rolling around. Think about how you might keep more than one from moving - how many toothpicks do you need for each egg? Gather your materials and create your design! Evaluate the design by putting a few eggs in and seeing if they stay put. Can you come up with any ways you could improve your design? Could your design be altered to protect more eggs?
Have fun and have an amazing summer!
