Looking for a Trick or Treat substitute this year? Join me for the Great Egg Drop Challenge!

Wondering what to do for Halloween this year? How about an experiment that’s fun and educational. Hey–you get to break some eggs! Or not, depending on how good your design is.

Moms–don’t worry–I’ve got you covered. We’ll bag our eggs first so clean-up’s a snap. Plus, you can use fresh eggs or hard-boiled eggs… the impact damage pattern is the same. Just less mess, and it’s easier to eat the eggs afterwards!

Join me at 1:15 pm Eastern Time (US) on my YouTube channel for a live premiere of The Great Egg Drop Challenge! This was previously run this summer as one of the virtual experiments for Girl Scouts of Western Ohio Year of the Girl STEM Summer Camp, and we had over 250 views. With YouTube’s new Premiere feature, you’ll be able to chat with me live, ask questions, share your results. See the link at the bottom of this post!

For more information about the experiment, check out my webpage, where you’ll find all the ingredients needed, plus some short teaser videos:
