Annual Egg Drop

RAHWAY—Susan Bechelli’s fifth grade class at Grover Cleveland School recently held their annual egg drop competition. The contest is an experiment where students attempt to create packaging that can keep a raw chicken egg intact when dropped from a height. Concepts of cushioning and shock absorption learned in previous investigations were utilized, and the students had a 50 percent success rate.
