 We have now passed Acient Egypt and are moving on to our school’s Sci/Tech exhibition.

For this we are preventing an egg from cracking when we drop it from a distance of 2-3 meters.

My partener for this is Eleanor.

Here is some of our work:

Question 1

It’s located 30km south of Cairo and covers an area of 7km by 1.5km.
