Chuck-Ken Egg Extraction Engineering Project START

QUICK VIEW

  • CW/HW: Develop 3 ideas for possible solutions to the Egg Extraction Engineering Project
  • DN: Examine the materials at your table.
  • EQ: What questions need to be answered before you can start on this project?

RESOURCES

LESSON OUTLINE

10min> Students complete the Do Now and are encouraged to handle all items. Take attendance.

5min< Ask guiding questions about the use of the materials. Allow students to discuss before they answer.

10min Overview of the Egg Extraction Engineering Project (see video above).

10min Students create a list of questions that still need to be answered before they can start thinking of solutions. Questions are answered in turn.

10min Students brainstorm 3 possible solutions.

5min< Clean up. Wrap up.

AIM: Students will build an egg extractor using common inexpensive materials by first asking questions, imagining solutions and problems, planning their design, constructing their device, and refining their design for improved results.
