Lower School Students Get the "Drop" on Science

Last weekend's Family Science Saturday event offered Lower School students a chance to settle one of science's most ferocious rivalries, gravity versus the chicken egg. Students were tasked to build a device that would protect a raw chicken egg when dropped from the second story of the Upper School's Renaissance Hall, the goal being to build the lightest, successful contraption.

Using balloons, plastic bags, cardboard tubes, and an assortment of other odds and ends, the interactive event proved fun, exciting, and a bit messy for all!

The Family Science Saturday program is an extracurricular activity that encourages the exploration of science for the entire family through a variety of activities throughout the year.
