Core Values Practice Challenge: Egg Drop

eggdropSince my Capital Girls Team is composed of many of my Girl Scout troop members, sometimes we get to double dip on activities.

At the Spring Encampment, several of the girls did the egg drop challenge.  The goal is to build a device that will keep a raw egg from breaking when dropped from the deck.

The girls were supplied with painter’s tape, newspaper, plastic grocery bags, string and toilet paper rolls to build an egg protection device. They had a time limit for building.

The parachute concept was very popular and effective.

If you are looking for a good core values practice challenge, this one is fun.
