 Eggbert has volunteered for the first egg-head mission to the Moon. The problem Eggbert faces is that the landing on the Moon’s surface will be very quick, and his space ship will crash. To ensure the success of this mission, your engineering team will need to design a safety restraint device that will withstand the crash.Your team has a budget of $800.00 to spend on the materials for the design. You must discuss what materials you will purchase, keeping within your budget, and record the items in a spreadsheet. You must also ALL agree on a team design. If Eggbert does not survive your first attempt, you may have time to redesign the restraint system. Your goal is to be the team that spends the least amount of money and keeps Eggbert from cracking.

Bottle flip ratio activity - Learning what ratios are, students will be challenged to engage in a bottle flip ratio game, where the students will flip a water bottle 5 times and will have to predict how many times it will land straight up. Then, after completing the 5 rounds, they will write the ratio for the actual results. To ‘amp’ up the next challenge, the students will have to brainstorm how much more water they should add to the water bottles to see if they can make a more accurate prediction of how many many times the water bottle will actually land upright. They will see if their prediction ratio is closer to the result ratio.
