Students at Western Hills Middle School in Cranston, Rhode Island learned some tough lessons about Engineering.  One lesson that they learned is that there are easier ways to make an omelet!

Students learned about Engineering and design by building cars out of cardboard, placing an egg inside and seeing if they could survive a crash test.  They could also build an airbag out of a sock if they wanted.  Despite a few broken eggs, students learned about the safety features that are designed into modern automobiles including crumple zones and shatterproof glass.

It’s always cool to see innovative ways of teaching kids about engineering and design through fun hands-on activities.  Let’s just hope those hands aren’t full of egg yolks!
