Three Rivers Festival 22nd Annual Egg Drop

No yolk! This event at Science Central is going to be an Eggs-travaganza! We'll be debating which came first, the chicken or the egg, as we celebrate a variety of activities dedicated to both!

Join in the festivities for the 2021 Design Collaborative Egg Drop Competition. Eggs will fly from the roof of Science Central to the ground below in contraptions specially designed to protect the eggs. It's anything goes, as contestants prepare flying machines ranging from melons loaded with eggs, to skydiving chutes, to giant pinwheels.
