Dropping an egg without breaking it is a classic science experiment that teaches some basic rules of physics. To begin, determine how far your egg will fall. Keep in mind the force, acceleration and impact of the egg. The longer the egg falls, the more cushion it will need.Know More
Determine where to drop the egg from, and measure how far the drop is. This helps you determine the supplies that you need. The higher you drop the egg, the faster it travels and harder it hits the ground.
Start sketching the design of the egg's container. Determine how to slow the acceleration. You can use a parachute or balloons.
Use any materials that will help support the egg and soften the force of impact with the gorund. Some contraption ideas are a cylinder made of foam that supports the egg, a box filled with tissues, Styrofoam, marshmallows or other soft, impact reducing items.
Once your contraption is complete, drop the egg. If you haven't tested your components, you might want to do so before the big launch. Drop your egg inside the contraption and record the results.
Some of the snacks that begin with the letter "E" are eclairs with pastry cream and maple espresso glaze, elote and egg salad carbonara. Elote is a Mexican snack.Full Answer >
To test the freshness of an egg, fill a pitcher or tall glass full of water and place the egg in the water. If the egg sinks, it is fresh.Full Answer >
A potato can be grown for a science experiment by putting the end of a sprouted potato into a glass of water and waiting for it to grow. It takes a few weeks for a potato to completely sprout in this way.Full Answer >
A good 8th grade science experiment should center around use of the scientific method, particularly if the project will be graded or displayed at a science fair. A topic that interests the student can lead to a positive experiment experience.Full Answer >
