STEM experiment at the Fire Station

On Tuesday the 5th grade STEM class from Lake Alfred Elementary visited the Lake Alfred Fire Station.  They were there to test their engineering skills by participating in an egg drop experiment.  Groups designed containers to protect the eggs during the experiment.  The firefighters then took each container to the top of the fire tower and ….dropped the containers with the egg inside.  Several eggs survived the crash, but others did not.  Either way the students enjoyed the experiment and learned a lot.
