Planetary Lander Project

Our students were tasked with using their engineering design skills to create a planetary lander using straws, index cards, and mini marshmallows to keep two marshmallow “aliens” inside a cup as it is dropped from heights of one and two feet. Students applied concepts of shock-absorption, drag, and stability to create and test designs.
