STEM Global Drone Drop Curriculum

This lesson has been updated with suggested adaptations for remote learning.

An authentic global health challenge is the delivery of critical medical supplies (e.g., vaccines, blood products, etc.) to remote communities. In this engineering design challenge that is a variation on the classic egg drop challenge, students work in teams to design, prototype, and test a vaccine container that will be delivered via drone technology. This activity represents a partial design cycle, but could be extended to include re-design, re-test, and optimize phases.
