Egg Drop Competition 2010

The 2nd Annual Egg Drop Contest was on October 19, 2010. The objective was to design and engineer a vehicle to safely carry a raw egg from a vertical drop from the Science Complex balcony as slowly as possible. The vehicle had to remain intact. For example, no external string could be attached to the vehicle to control flight or impact and they were not allowed to catch the device either. The vehicle had to be designed to allow a raw egg to be easily inserted and removed from the vehicle. There was no weight or size restriction, however the vehicle had to demonstrate creative "design" aspect than merely putting an egg in a stuffed box. Creativity was the key! Prizes were given to the best 3 designs.
