Can you design a system that will protect an egg from a fall? Give it a try and find out. Use items from around the house to build something that will prevent eggs smashing all over the ground. Make notes on your Scientific Method sheet.
Can you protect a falling egg?
What you'll need: Eggs, Paper towel.
Build your egg protectors from resources such as:
Be green. Try and use recycled materials if you can.
The aim: Your goal is simple, design and build a system that will protect an egg from a 1 metre (3.3 feet) drop. Eggs that smash or crack fail the test while eggs that survive without a scratch pass!
Getting started: You need to create something that can absorb the energy the egg gathers as it accelerates towards the ground. A hard surface will crack the egg so you have to think carefully about how you can protect it. Something that will cushion the egg at the end of its fall is a good place to start, you want the egg to decelerate slowly so it doesn't crack or smash all over the ground. You'll need to run a few trials so have some eggs ready as guinea pigs, those that don’t survive will at least be comforted knowing they were smashed for a good cause, and if not, you can at least have scrambled eggs for dinner right?
The egg Drop Challenge will take place on Friday 30th January. We will start at 1 metre then go higher and higher.
Here's the question we did in class today. It's a great question...Get someone at home to do this!
Two football teams, Alpha United and Beta Rovers have each played fifteen games in their league.
The data below show how many goals the teams scored in their matches.
Can you match the data to the teams?
5N, the good people in charge of the PYP here at IST is asking all students from grade 3 to 6 to complete this survey. You may have filled a similar one out last year. Please give thoughtful answers where you can, and help your school improve!

Archimedes was a great Ancient Greek philosopher, mathemetician, scientist, inventor and astronomer. He took baths, as all of you should. During one of his baths he discovered something great (I'll tell you the story in class) and went out to shout "Eureka!" in the streets.
Welcome back, everyone!
