HIT Egg Drop “Soft Landing”


Duur: 1 uur


Honours students at the Hanze Institute of Technology (HIT) have designed an Egg Drop with a difference. It is ideal for teams of 3 or 4 students. Using a very limited amount of basic household materials, like tape, plastic bags, cups and straws, the groups create a protective casing for an egg. And there is only 20 minutes design and build time! When ready, the egg is dropped onto a ''mars landing site" that registers the force of impact on a screen. The winning team must protect their egg and also record the lowest impact. The Soft Landing workshop combines engineering, sensors, physics and fun!
HIT is an international, engineering school, based in the Netherlands. Its Honours Bachelor Programme and research centre specialise in the field of applied sensor technology. The school is part of Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen.
