Egg parachutes with the theme of Futurama. Without mentioning the word 'Parachute' to students need to think in more inventive and creative ways.

This lesson is ideal for teaching the engineering design process (EDP) which is Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Experiment, and Improve. The students work together in their teams to brainstorm the best stellar drop survival kits, they use blueprints to draw and label their design, next, they build or create the product, then they experiment or test it to see if it works properly, lastly, they improve it if it does not work properly. I will add this to my favorites and use it with other engineering lessons I have. Thank you!! This is fantastic!! STEMcoordinator
