Maharishi School: Video of Middle School Project-based Activity--Egg-Drop & Gallon Water-Drop

Reported by Gabe S. and Marcus S.

The objective of the project was to design an apparatus that will protect a free-falling 1 gallon plastic jug of water or an egg in a bag dropped from a second floor window that hits the ground.

The requirements and constraints of this project are the following:
  • The apparatus must fit through the window.
  • The water jug or egg will be included in weight of the apparatus.
  • The apparatus may not weigh more than 35 kilograms or 500 grams
The goal of this project was to learn how to do projects, meaning managing time, getting work done, and testing tolerance of your apparatus.
