Egg Drop WCHS Egg Drop Challenge

Students from all of Mrs. Smith’s Physics classes participated in an experiment called the "Egg Drop Challenge" on Monday, April 9, 2018. Students crafted cardboard boxes lined with various "cushioning agents" ranging from drinking straws, yarn, rice, sponges, balloons, marshmallows and even "slings" suspended by rubber bands inside their boxes. They then delivered their "boxes" that were carefully constructed to the scissor lift and it was raised to a height of 20 feet. They timed the “fall” from the scissor lift with their electronic timing devices as the boxes were dropped one by one. The amount of time for the fall allowed the students to calculate the final velocity of the egg on impact and determine the amount of force the egg experienced during this collision. The end result was hopefully to have an intact egg after the fall....let’s just say some eggs were not as lucky as others. The students enjoyed the experiment while utilizing the concept of Physics at the same time.

Knockout Challenges: Seven students were chosen to represent our chapter in the knockout challenges. While all of the students did exceptionally well, one student, Gabe Goff, won his knockout challenge out of about 30 students. He received two tickets to the Hawks vs Lakers game. 
 
Marketing Competitions:  There are two competitions in this area.  Students are divided into groups of four to six within their chapter.  These groups are given marketing scenarios where they have to create marketing ideas within a 10-15 minute timeframe.  Worth DECA had two different groups win BOTH marketing competitions winning money for our chapter.  Faith Adkins, Bailey Coker, Emerald Day, Cason King, and Cameryn Lewis won the Social Media marketing competition.  Kayla Martin, Megan Avery, Ariuna Johnson, and Zalen Timmons won the Jr Hawks Marketing competition.  
 
In addition to these activities, the students were also able to meet the marketing team for the Atlanta Hawks and learn about careers in marketing.  And then, of course, they were able to enjoy the Hawks vs Cavaliers game that evening.
