Our annual egg drop is a long standing tradition that tests our students engineering and physics skills. Each group will make a contraption that will hold an egg and keep it from cracking. A teacher will take each contraption and drop it, toss it, and/or throw it from the rooftop. The contraption/s that survives each drop it, toss it, and throw it will be the winner.
