Egg Drop Challenge

Activity Purpose: Egg Drop
Activity Duration: 1-2 hours
Group Size: 8+

The Classic Egg Drop team activity build communication and problem-solving skills. It's a great exercise for an off-site or at the beginning of a long work cycle.

Egg Drop Rules:

Choose team captains. Split into teams of 2-3 so each team has at least 3 members. Give the task to the team captains to share with their team. The task is to assemble a package that can keep an from breaking from a 2-4 story drop. Here's the list of tools to provide to your team to build the protective package for the eggs:

  • newspaper
  • paper towels
  • straws
  • tape
  • glue
  • rubber bands
  • tooth picks
  • and any other spare office materials

Tell each team they have 30min-1hour to create the egg package. After time has expired, test each team's protective package by dropping it from the determined height. Before testing each package, allow someone other than the captain of each group to explain the structure. Increase the height of the drop until a winner is determined.
