Resource: Eggstronaut Parachute Challenge Educator Guide

This educator guide provides resources to help students use the engineering design process to construct, test, and analyze a prototype parachute designed to slow the descent of an egg and minimize the force of impact when landing. The guide contains student sheets, background information, steps of the engineering design process, tips for capturing digital video and using a video analysis app, a scoring rubric, physics formulas, and additional resources. Activity materials for grades 3–4 and 5–12 are provided. Learn more.
