Kelly and Ryan learn about the egg drop challenge and set a Guinness World Record with Science Bob. Subscribe: https://bit.ly/2HFUeAK Website: https://kellya...

You will need:

  • 1 plastic cup of water with a mouth wide enough to fit the egg.
  • 1 10” (25 cm) piece of cardboard or a small tray with a SMOOTH bottom
  • 1 cardboard tube (paper towel or toilet paper tubes work well)
  • 1 Egg (uncooked for more drama)

What to do:

  1. Place the tray centered over the cup
  2. Place the tube on its end in the center of the tray
  3. Place the egg horizontally on the tube
  4. When ready, strike the tray hard enough with your palm to send the tray flying, but not so hard you hit the glass of water. If all goes well, the tray and paper tube will go flying, but the egg will safely drop into the water.
