...after Spring Break...

April 15th- Egg Drop Lab!

Students must build a structure (at home) that should be able to withstand a drop from a one-story building. Only three materials may be used:

  • straws (drinking kind is great)
  • glue (any kind)
  • tape (any kind)

I will have the egg (uncooked, of course) ready to insert into the structure that morning so be sure to plan for that in the design of your structure. I can't wait to see which ones survive and the students' creativity in creating these!

April 22nd- Frog Dissection #1

(please email me at mkgutridge@capousd.org to secure your spot!)

April 29th- Frog Dissection #2
