Unit 2: The 'Egg Drop'
In this unit you will create a model of module that could successfully land on Mars and safely deploy it's payload. This is a project that ends in a competition to see which module is the 'most' successful.
Then project allows you to get creative, thinking of innovative ways to solve the problem of getting the payload to safely land on Mars. As in real life there is a budget, which means you have access to limited materials.
The project is assessed on criteria A to D.
