Terreton students get lesson in gravity through egg drop experiment

The students in Mrs. Lerwill’s 3rd-grade class at Terreton Elementary got a special lesson on gravity thanks to the donated time of a helicopter operator.

Leif Isaccson of Desert Air Ag volunteered to take to the skies with his helicopter and drop the students’ eggs and special containers from between 100 to 150 feet. The egg drop was part of a lesson on the laws of motion. The students wrapped or boxed their eggs in a variety of ways to see which way was best for protecting the egg.

“We wanted to do an egg drop with the eggs and learn a little bit about the laws of motion,” said Mrs. Laura Lerwill.

“It’s been the talk of the school for about two days now since the found out and they been pretty pumped,” said Tanis Cherry, from the West Jefferson School board. “They brought supplies from home to fill their boxes and protect the eggs and they were really excited.”
