Earlier this week the fifth graders participated in what some might call The Ultimate Egg Challenge. Most adults and students have some experience or memory participating in the classic egg drop challenge. This is where you take a raw egg, package it up, drop it from somewhere high, and finally see if the egg survived. Well, these fifth graders took the egg drop to the next level! Instead of dropping their eggs from a high area, they packaged their eggs into rockets and launched them at top speed high into the air where they ultimately came crashing back down to earth. 

Overall, some of the eggs survived, and some of them did not. Either way this science activity was a BLAST!
