Nease Engineering Academy Students Test Out Egg Drop Projects

In Nease’s Stellar Academy of Engineering, our Introduction to Engineering Design students recently took part in an annual right of passage for the program: the egg drop project. Putting their design skills and ingenuity to the test, students had to create contraptions to protect a raw egg as it is thrown from the top of Panther Stadium down to the earth below.  Students could only use straws, tape and string for materials, and came up with some very interesting designs!  Many of the eggs survived the fall, but there were a few scrambles along the way.
