Sixth Grade Class Project

The sixth grade science class held their annual egg drop this week. The students made structures that they hoped would protect an egg from a two-story drop. To build their structure, they each worked with a box of straws and a roll of tape. Mr. Kaiser dropped each student’s project from the fire escape to the concrete right outside of the kitchen. Thanks to Mr. Kaiser and Ms. Conklin for this awesome project!
