Petworth kids filled empty boxes with cotton balls, cereal, plastic bags, newspaper, and hoped that it would protect their raw eggs from cracking.
This was a STEM science program that fit our Fizz, Boom, Read! Summer Reading theme.
We predicted that cotton balls would be the most successful cushion for the raw eggs.
After making sure that their boxes were securely closed, the children tossed their boxes off the front walkway of the library.
Only one girl's egg cracked! She had cereal and newspaper in her box, and only a few cottonballs.
It was proven that the cotton balls provided the best protection for the eggs.
We had lots of fun packing the boxes, throwing them, and seeing whose eggs "survived."
Stay tuned for more awesome children's programs at the Petworth Library!
