Fairy Tale Engineering: Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall

Fairy Tale Engineering: Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall

What if Humpty Dumpty had had some protection when he fell from the wall? Would all the kings horses and all the kings men have been able to put him back together again? Or would they have not even had to try, and Humpty would have just walked it off? Join us in this thought experiment as we recreate Humpty Dumpty's fall and use all sorts of materials to protect him.

For engineers going into grades 3-5.
