We Try Maker Maven's STEM Challenge

Jaden, my husband, and I decided to try out Maker Maven's STEM Challenge. The objective of the challenge was to build a container that would protect an egg from a high fall. Sounds fun, right?! ;) First, we had to gather what we needed for the challenge. The materials needed are simple. Just raw eggs and construction materials. The next step was to build containers we felt would keep our eggs safe from breaking when we drop them from a high place. We both had very different techniques. Jaden's is on the left and mine is on the right

Now it was time to experiment! When we felt our eggs were well protected we went to the second story of our house and dropped our safely packed eggs out the window.

Jaden opened up his container first to see if his egg survived...and it did!

I wasn't so lucky...

Jaden said the trick is to keep it simple. I will have to keep that in mind for next time! We would love to see you try this STEM Challenge from Maker Maven. Share your results with us through social media! Best, Brianna and Jaden
