“Eggs"traordinary Solutions to Real World Problems: Group Invention

Students are asked to take on the roles of inventors and collaborate to design a cushioning device (given limited supplies) thatwillsaveaneggfrombreakingwhendroppedfroma20-footheight. The lesson will begin with a quickwrite question that activates prior knowledge about who creates or invents things and why. This will be followed by a brief video on necessity. Groups of students will then be given time to plan out their design in the form of a drawing. After the planning stage, students will be given 30 minutes to build their devices, and once time is called, student groups will take turns launching their packages from a second-story landing.
