What are some ideas on egg crash cars?

Answer

Science teachers like to ask their students to come up with ideas on how to make egg crash cars to help teach students how to calculate speed, acceleration and force of their cars. The cars are made out of the egg cartons themselves and the students can add various components to it the car to make it go faster and ride smoother. Raw eggs are then placed inside the all the different designed crash cars, and then studies are performed on how fast the car goes, if it crashes and what the outcome of the car landing at the end of a ramp is. The students then get to talk about how they could have been built better.
