Egg Drop!

We designed contraptions out of all reusable or recycled materials that would protect an egg during a three story drop. After inserting a hard-boiled egg, the contraption was dropped to see if it would survive. Here’s video footage of what happened!

Life Expectancy

Using the information from Hungry Planet, a.k.a. What the World Eats, we looked into how much money families from a typical home spend on groceries each week. Each family was from a different country and spent somewhere between $1.23 and $419.95 (USD) on groceries a week. Following that we averaged how much money was being spent per person in the household, and graphed this data. In addition, we used THIS website by the BBC to explore if there is a correlation between nutrition and life expectancy. It has been an interesting investigation.

What relationships did you notice between the amount spent on groceries and life expectancy in each country?
