Join the fun at the 2017 ASME/AIAA Egg Drop Design Competition! Designed to promote engineering and science for students, this competition is open to all ages.

Participants are asked to build a device to protect an egg from a second story (approximately 20 feet high) or third story (approximately 40 feet high) drop to keep it from going splat!  The lightest device that comes closest to the target while protecting the egg wins!  Eggs will be supplied at the contest.

Participation is FREE!  
PRIZES for winners in each age group!
