Lessons in Gravity

As part of their science studies, Key Stage 3 learners have been learning all about gravity. As part of the day’s activity, learners competed in a practical experiment to protect an egg from a 7 foot drop. The teams were given a variety of materials and free reign to do whatever they wanted with them in order to protect their egg from a potentially messy impact.

For the safety of the classroom carpets, the experiments were performed outside and saw a huge variety of inventive ideas to protect the eggs.

Most of them survived the fall.
