Oak Grove 6th graders break an egg

(WDAY TV) - How do you like your eggs? Scrambled, over-easy, or dropped off a building? Newton's laws were put to the test today by Oak Grove 6th graders.

The students completed their work on energy, energy transfers and Newton's laws by dropping eggs off 4-story Jackson Hall. The students try and design a structure that will help the egg survive the fall.

Some worked, some didn't, but everyone learned something.

“Like a can of jiff and put some Jell-o in it, and stuck the egg in the middle and said I was done. It died.”

But you don't get a failing grade for a broken egg, just a messy project.
