Description:

In this activity, learners will build a structure using a shoebox, aluminum foil, paper, rubber bands, glue, tape, and other common materials that will meet the following criteria when tested: 1) protect an ice cube from melting under a hot lamp or direct sunlight; 2) protect an egg from fracture when dropped from a height of ten feet; and 3) cost as little as possible. These tasks relate to the overarching concepts of space as a hostile environment, engineering that is needed to build and launch astronomical instruments, and testing of spacecraft and instrument models. This activity is from the Touch the Sun educator guide.
