Egg Drop Kerplop!

Egg Drop Kerplop!
2016: TBD
Construction: 10:00 am - Noon
Dropping: Noon - 1:00 pm

Teams are given building materials, one raw egg, and as much as two hours (from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm) to build an impact-resistant container for the egg. When the time is up, Family Museum staff will drop the contained eggs from the balcony in the Family Museum’s Great Hall. Each team whose egg remains intact will win, but everyone gets a prize! Egg Drop Kerplop is a family event and a wonderful way for kids and parents to work together on a creative and truly challenging project! This activity is included with paid admission or Family Museum Membership.

I am so impressed with the staff of the Family Museum. [They] were wonderful hosts and so welcoming not only to me but to all of the student inventors and their families.
