Project Egg Launch is designed for K-12 students. The project includes many features to help students understand the principles of engineering design while increasing their awareness towards applying basic physics concepts. In addition, the students are given an kinesthetic way of learning by the hands-on experience of building an egg enclosure. Project Egg Launch is a project that students will enjoy and get the chance to actively problem solve and build. Team 6-1 has the plan to get students interested in an engineering related field. Once the student understands the parameters of the competition, the students may express their ideas in various ways using the supplies that are given.

The only two materials required are a catapult and an

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis has been included, and a SWOT diagram is included in Appendix A in order to better understand the concepts of the Project Egg Launch.

Project Egg Launch counts a few strengths among its benefits. In addition to being a fun and easy way for students to learn, the project utilizes non-toxic and reusable materials. The costliest components are the wood and brackets needed for the catapult, which can be reused many times. The lesson can be custom tailored to students at different levels to satisfy requirements, it is easy to clean-up, and simple to demonstrate.

Additionally, there are some opportunities teachers may be able to use to their advantage. The materials needed for the students are relatively simple. Students can use items that are around the classroom such as paper and tape. If additional supplies such as duct tape, bags, or sticks are wanted they can be used as well. Students are able to build something and watch the outcome of their enclosure after the enclosure with the egg are launched. Further, by having students in groups of 3-4 students are able to collaborate together and create the best idea. The students are able to work in groups and practice working in
