Engineering Students Simulate Company Redesign

The engineering class was tasked to find a package design that would keep a raw egg from cracking after being dropped three stories high to simulate a company's redesign of packaging a specific part that is continuously damaged in shipping. Not only did they test their designs and redesigns, they also documented their designs by submitting a report that included the engineering design process, list of parts needed for the package, a drawing or sketch of the packaging assembly, measured weight and volume. The engineering class continues to explore the different types of engineering and the principles of engineering through activities and projects, guest speakers and field trips, as well as in-class researching and presentations.
