Egg-citing Investigations

three eggs Eggs are pretty amazing, and definitely one of nature’s most perfect designs. You may have noticed that birds often make their nests high up in the trees, sit on the eggs to protect them against predators and keep them warm, and may even build elaborate nests of densely woven grasses, twigs or mud to protect them from wind and rain. But what if that egg were to drop from its perch or aerie? Try the fun Egg Drop Challenge to test your skills and create a device to protect an egg from breaking.

Have some empty egg shells? Investigate this statement: FACT OR FICTION; 2 hollowed out egg shells can hold up a heavy book without breaking. Is this a myth or is it possible? Let us know what you discover!
