Egg Drop

We hosted an egg drop at the Flying Monkey today. Here are the 'vessels' that were constructed by Alex, Emma, Owen, and Kurt. We ended up having a hard time getting an egg to crack, and discovered that most any contraption with a parachute was destined to succeed, even if the egg had no protection as the bottom picture illustrates. We are thinking that the tarp we put down to protect the space outside from getting 'eggy' at the Flying Monkey gave a little cushion, and then also the fire escape we dropped from wasn't as high as we could have used. But it was a lot of fun, and there were lots of creative designs. Most of the kids that came made three and four drops, weren't ready to stop when our time slot there was up and enjoyed dropping a final raw egg at the end. I'll post photos of the other designs on the next post.
