  • Egg Project

    Mrs. Seeger's and Mrs. Hoff's second graders are engineers at work!
    The Task: Students were given a specific set of simple materials. 15 straws, one sheet of paper, 5 rubber bands, 1 30-cm piece of tape, 100 cm of string. In a shoebox, they designed a shipping container for an egg (sealed inside a plastic baggie for safety). It’s teamwork at it’s best. Collaboration, compromise, and hard work. The box is then shipped to a school in Chicago in an eggs-change. When both classes receive their packages, they will open them live on Skype. They will analysis and share data about the condition of the eggs.
    Stay tuned for the results!
