The Great McWane Egg Drop

April 20

Egg Drop Contraption Construction Session #1, 11:00am-12:30pm

Hatch a plan to eggineer a creative contraption to protect an egg from a 70-foot plus drop from the roof of McWane Science Center! We wouldn’t want you to get egg on your face when we put your contraption to the test during the Great McWane Egg Drop #1 today at 1pm.

The Great McWane Egg Drop #1, Outside on the McWane Plaza, 1:00pm

Are you ready to whisk it? Will your egg survive, or will your contraption not be all that it is cracked up to be? Put your contraption to the test during the first egg drop of the day. The top 3 survivors will take home the Golden Egg Trophy. If you didn’t get a chance to put all your eggs in this basket, you can still watch the outcome of this eggstreme challenge and join us for the next egg drop.
