Mrs. Weisman's classes participating in egg crash and paper car races Mrs. Weisman's 6th Grade Science classes recently participated in Paper Car Races and Egg Crash tests last week. The assignment was to build a vehicle out of only three sheets of paper, glue, a straw and plastic wheels and axles, that was both fast and safe. The students first watched a car safety video, then sketched and labeled a design before building their cars. They raced their cars to figure speed, then added a raw egg to race and crash into a block wall to figure momentum and ultimately test safety. Many of the eggs survived and the students celebrated with scrambled eggs, while discussing which design features worked best.
