On a sunny winter day the O G & E Science Club students came to Adventure Quest to test their egg drop hypothesis. Leonardo Science Education Coordinator Joyce Fales is teaching the students scientific methods. A hypothesis is written in clear simple language and is an educated, testable prediction about what will happen.
The students wanted to determine if an egg dropped from a tall platform would break. They designed special containers to "protect" their egg and climbed up the castle of Adventure Quest to drop their egg.
Each student took a turn to see how their egg would do. Many of student's eggs did in fact survive the experiment but some did crack. Afterwards the class discussed why some did crack and others did not.
O G & E Science Club meets after school on Tuesdays from 3:30 - 5 pm. The class is an opportunity for children to learn real science but also have fun and explore their imagination.
