This creative workshop will put students' engineering and design skills to the test as they build a parachute for a Martian probe. 

After learning about Martian probes the students will work in small teams to manage resources, design and build a new novel parachute. Their creation will then be put to the test, as each team's Egg-onaut plummets from the roof, hoping to survive.

Note: Unfortunately this workshop is not available as outreach.

Recommended: Years 3 - 7
