The annual egg drop experiment performed by G.C. Hartman Elementary students, and organized by Gifted Teacher Mr. Ian McCoog, once again kept students highly engaged!  The lesson tasked the students with building a container to reduce the impact of the force of gravity on a dropped egg. Among the objectives of the lesson were for the students to make and test predictions based on a number of variables that will affect the outcome of an egg drop and to compare the effects of different materials, shapes, and forces on the strength and stability of their built structures.
