Egg Drop Laboratory
YOUR TASK: To produce a craft in
which an egg (egg must be inside the craft) can be dropped from 2
meters or higher and not break. The goal is for each student to use
their knowledge of potential and kinetic energy to keep an egg from
breaking or cracking when dropped. The following outline will help you
organize your laboratory report. GOOD LUCK!
PURPOSE OF LABORATORY:
PROCEDURE: (Diagram the craft
you designed. Include measurements off to the side of the diagram and
label all significant parts of the craft. Write a description of how
the craft works using complete sentences below the diagram).
ANALYSIS AND RESULTS:
Did the craft survive the fall from
What was successful in the design of
What would you change about your
craft if you did the experiment again?
As the egg drops, what type of energy
conversion is taking place? Explain.
CONCLUSIONS AND EXPLANATIONS:
(In 4-5 sentences, summarize what you did in this laboratory and
what you learned in this laboratory. Explain what parts were
successful and how you could improve your craft in the future. Sign
and date the laboratory at the bottom of the paragraph).
