Materials List: Egg Drop

Per demo (or per group of four students each, if you are brave!)

  • 4 raw eggs
  • 4 drinking glasses filled with water (best if the glasses have a slightly wider top and do not taper); fill the glasses about ¾ full
  • 4 rolled playing cards; roll the cards so that the shorter sides are at the top and bottom and tape shut
  • 1 cafeteria-style tray or cookie sheet
