Home Learning iSTEAM Challenge: Week 5

2035 0

Since the last day of school is next week, we’d like to let you know that this will be our last challenge of the year.

At AcadeCap, the Egg Drop Challenge is done on a yearly basis – this year will be no different. The iSTEAM Team challenges you and your family to design a contraption that will protect your egg when it gets dropped.

Using materials found at home, plan and design a contraption that will protect your egg from cracking when dropped from a significant height. We suggest perhaps dropping the contraption out of a second storey window, with the help of an adult at all times.

Record your attempts, and make sure to take photos to send to Mme Shannon!

Have fun, and have a wonderful summer!

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
