Stealth technology, small cargo hold, and a propulsion bus with high acceleration You get the idea. A warship's payload section can include anti-spacecraft weaponsorbital bombardment weapons for revolt suppression type spacecraft as wellweapon mountsweapon control stations, combat information centerarmorpoint defenseweapon heat radiators and heat sinksand anything else that can be used to mission-kill enemy spacecraft. Pirate ships and privateers might forgo defenses if they only expect to be engaging unarmed cargo ships. But they will regret this if they have the misfortune to encounter armed enemy convoy escort ships or are surprised by a Q-ship.
Glue gun Getting ready Cut a toilet roll horizontally to get two exact halves. Slit the other toilet roll lengthwise. You now have three pieces of toilet roll to work with. Wrap the egg in a Ziploc bag to reduce the impact on landing.
The base Place one of the halves on a flat surface, and place the slit tube over it. Ensuring it fits snugly over the lower half, tape the longer roll back together.
You have now created a cylinder which will effectively cover the lower half. Detach the pieces of toilet roll, and use a scissor to make 1-inch vertical cuts in the lower half.
Fix the widened tube over the half, and make two holes through them.
Push two straws through the holes ensuring they intersect at the center of the tube, and keep the base aside. The propeller Use the uncut half to create blades by inserting wooden skewers into the upper portion of the roll.
Ensure the skewers encircle the perimeter of the toilet roll. Cut out rectangular strips of the paper, and stick them to each of the skewers at slight angles using glue or electric tape. Ensure the blades are equidistant from the center of the tube and tilted at the same angle.
The propeller tube should resemble a miniature version of an exhaust fan. The assembly Place the egg, which was wrapped in a Ziploc bag, vertically inside the base. Ensure it neatly sits over the straws. Place the propeller on top of the widened tube. Fix it into place with a single skewer inserted through the two pieces of tube.
Bend the vertical slits outward to act like a shock absorber on landing. Attach a piece of thread to the top portion of the propeller. Hold the device with the help of the thread to test the working.The problem is simple enough. You’ve got a raw egg, and it’s going to be dropped from a high place.
You have to build a contraption so that it doesn’t break when it hits. Welcome to the Gemology Online Faceting Diagram database!
All patterns on this page were written by faceters on this site. To access the diagrams, simply click on the image of the stone. The idea of the of the egg drop project is to use as few materials as possible to make the packaging strong enough to withstand the fall. Some teachers may also place a time limit and weight limit.
The kids always look forward to the annual egg drop project!If you’re unfamiliar with this popular STEM activity, the challenge is for kids to design a contraption using various materials (usually recyclables) to protect a raw egg from a high fall.
Egg drop challenge science project is always fun for kids. You design a structure to hold the egg and to protect the egg from breaking when dropped from certain height.
The project can be designed for different age groups with various difficulty levels. Dropbox is a modern workspace designed to reduce busywork-so you can focus on the things that matter.
