STEAM Powered Building Challenge (Facebook & Instagram)

Monday Jul 6, 2020 10:00am - 5:00pm
All Locations
Join us each week for a different building challenge! This week: Humpty Dumpty's Egg Drop Challenge. Your job is to protect Humpty Dumpty so that when he has a great fall, he doesn't break! Using any materials you can find, build a secure package for a raw egg. Use cardboard, cotton, tape, feathers, leaves--whatever you think will work. With an adult's help and permission, try dropping your package (with egg inside) from a 6-foot height to see what happens. For extra fun, upload a picture of your creation to Instagram using the hashtags #STEMPoweredBuilding and #CADL, or add it to the Virtual Display Case on our  Facebook pageRead More
