Mag-Lev Egg Crashing Vehicles, Grades 6-12 

Let’s face it, the good old egg drop design challenge is tried and true, but it’s time to bring something much more exciting and meaningful into your students lives when teaching forces, motion, energy and matter - especially if you are a science teacher trying to address the Engineering and Physical Science performance expectations for grades 6-8, or 9-12.  Participants in this workshop will start the session with an introduction to the Co2 Powered, Magnetic Levitation Egg Crashing Vehicle design challenge, requiring them to engage in the practices of science and engineering to develop a transportation safety system on a vehicle which will be shot into a brick wall at high speeds.  Participants will experience model lessons on forces, Newton’s laws, and various types of safety system and packaging designs before being thrust into the process of creating and optimizing their vehicles using evidence based calculations.  

Trainers include Chris Anderson and Chris Better.
