ACADEMIC EGG DROP: Students will have the opportunity to design a protective casing for an egg, which will then be dropped from a significant height on one of our two designated Academic Days. Students can design their own “egg-protecting” packages out of recycled materials before arriving at Fantasy Island. We will host a special “Egg Drop” event on May 30, June 7 and June 8. Eggs will be individually dropped from a significant height with the goal of keeping the egg from cracking upon landing. Students will have the opportunity to utilize creative problem solving as they design their protective casings. All casings must be crafted prior to arrival. All materials for this project, including eggs, must be provided by the school group.
