The students of Emerald Cove Middle School recently competed in an egg drop competition. James Horvath’s sixth grade science classes challenged Shea Stockman’s eighth grade classes to see who could save the most eggs when dropped out of a second-story window. The students were given a specific material list to build their contraption. They used their knowledge of the principles of physics and STEM techniques to build their contraption, make blueprints and design a mission patch. The eighth graders won the competition with 55 percent egg saves vs. 49 percent for the sixth grade. Shown above are students competing in the challenge.
