The 3rd Annual Egg Drop Contest was on October 25, 2012. The objective was to design and engineer a vehicle to safely carry a raw egg from a vertical drop from the Science Complex blacony as slowly as possible. The vehicle had to remain intact, for example no external strings could be attached to the vehicle. 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 desmostrate creative "design" based on science.
