Challenge

Egg Drop Lander

Do you have what it takes to build a lander that can safely bring an egg back down to earth? Take a look at this NASA challenge and find out.

Design and build a lander that can carry a raw egg safely back to earth when dropped from a height. This fun challenge is part of NASA’s educational materials and can be done solo or in teams. How high can you go with your design? Don’t crack under the pressure!

This challenge calls for a “whole-brain” approach: the design and build of your lander will be underpinned by an understanding of the basics of gravity, aerodynamics, velocity and acceleration.
