30th Annual Egg Drop Contest

As many as 500 area students attempting to achieve what seems impossible—dropping raw eggs from the top of Vulcan without breaking the eggs. The objective is to inspire engineering thought and design in students. Participants will be asked to design apparatuses that will protect a raw egg from breaking when dropped from the top of Vulcan's 100-plus-foot pedestal. Entries will be judged on engineering thought and creativity, mass of the apparatus, and the ease with which the egg is loaded into the apparatus.

Friday, April 5 at 6:00am to 3:00pm
